Frightened bad coughing has come back. ( It started me on the search for end of life / COPD breathing complications).

Does anyone else find that they start coughing to clear their lungs of mucus, can’t get them clear, and reach the scary point where they can’t catch their breath / stop coughing? My newest thing is to start coughing while I’m eating (which always produces more mucus flow), and now I’m worried I’m going to need the Heimlich manouver (and I live alone).

Chronic cough

Does everyone with COPD have a chronic horrendous cough? OR is the cough related to asthma? I have the chronic all the time. I have found that some of the coughing spells are triggered by several different smells. Anyone else experience. I do have asthma as well as the chronic bronchitis. Thanks in advance for your comments.
