I had a chest x-ray and shows mild copd and hyperinflating lungs,how can that be possible if I don't have any cough and maybe a bit congested,I have a very bad allergies at spring time and feel like its coming.
An X-Ray is a physical measurement, a cough is a possible symptom. I'd take the medical diagnosis of a physical measurement before rejecting because of the lack of a specific symptom. I am wrong if it is impossible to have mild COPD without a cough. Discuss with the doctor who prescribed the X-Ray, was any further action suggested?
