Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. But you could have a lung function test done, this will help to make a diagnosis. The commonly measured values in lung function test or spirometry are FEV1 and FVC, which are forced expiratory volumes. The normal spirometry values are FVC-80-120% and FEV-80-120%. Also, FEV1/FVC ratio, is a calculated ratio used in the diagnosis of obstructive and restrictive diseases. A diagnosis of COPD is made when the FEV1/FVC ratio is less than 70%. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
