<< Was a SWD in my 20,s Before SCUBA. And know to have developed lungs some 20% larger than normal.
Went wonky and admitted to BMH Singapore. Initially Diagnosis Koch Disease. Discharged as well, some six weeks later, as not a type of TB.
Don't recall its Medical term other than some sort of Pneumonia that uniquely affects the Upper lung.
Fast forward to civilian life. Had to give up diving. Various GP,s stamping the record as Asthma combined with COPD. Many years of having to inconveniently carry two inhalers JIC.
Reason for posting. In the event that other sufferers may not be aware.
Circa 20yrs ago a GP. advised. Try this. "Symbicort 200/6". One inhaler that also contains Cortisone, affectual as a Steroid.
Never looked back since. Any Nasal and or Lung mucus, readily dissolved for simple discharge.
Swimming a pleasure again.

I was told by the new practice nurse - when I said I had Asthma - she said "you cant have Asthma & C.O.P.D."
I have had Asthma - since I was three year old - now she says I have not got it ?
The practice took away my steroid inhaler - years ago.

Most people with asthma won’t develop COPD, and many people with COPD don't have asthma.
However, it is possible to have both.
Asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) occurs when someone has these two diseases at once, sufferers of overlap syndrome are predominantly ex smokers.
