My Husband Was Diagnosed With COPD Several Years Ago. He Has Done Well Over The Years But Lately He Gets Tired Very Easily.

My Husband Was Diagnosed With COPD Several Years Ago. He Has Done Well Over The Years But Lately He Gets Tired Very Easily.

The symptoms that he has now are very noticeable. At times he breaths loudly. He is also complaining of pain in his back. Mucus is most times a problem. He coughs to attempt to get the mucus up. Sometimes he gets some to move and at other times he doesn't. I would like to know what may be happening. Is this another stage of COPD? Should he get in touch with his Pulmonary Specialist? Or what should we do? This is getting to the point that I'm worried about it.
