Improve COPD Symptoms With These Activities

9. Symptoms

People with COPD may experience exacerbations, which are episodes or flares characterized by the worsening of symptoms for several days. Many people live with COPD for several years without knowing it as symptoms sometimes do not appear until later stages of the disease. The main symptoms include a daily cough and mucus production at least three months a year for two years straight. Other symptoms may include chest tightness, wheezing, shortness of breath, lack of energy, and swelling in the limbs, feet or ankles.
