bilateral lung fields are hyperinflated

27 years old male
6 months back, my 1st chest x-ray came out normal followed by viral fever twice in a month which affected my liver,after 2 months my 2nd x-ray showed "bilateral lung fields are hyperinflated (nothing else)". i went for spiromertry test, results are FVC=90% FEV1=95% FEV1/FVC% =107. recently chest x-ray and ct scan came out normal. I have been a smoker for last 8 years and with total of approx 4 to 5 packyears. every morning i run around 2 kms and do exercise. i always feel my upper back is little stressed, i feel i cannot expand my lungs more than 80 or 90%, full inhalation cause me to burp always. now i always think i am not ok and i am worried too because of my 2nd x-ray. am i suffering from COPD, please suggest something.
