Diagnose emphysema

I am confused with diagnose given me re above.  I do not now, and never have had a cough.  I have no
restriction in taking in air, have had 1 hr pulmonary testing, no asthma, have had arterial blood testing,
and blood count (finger is 97, blood gas 67, gas exchange perfect, yet have been diagnosed with
emphysema.  Did have pneumonia (acquired from adverse reaction to overdose of zantac) productive
cough yellow and green firsst, then after time changes to dark grey with spots.  Was give salbutamol
and atrovent, had violent reaction to medication.  Does not seem right
