Symptoms of COPD
If you recognise a mixture of the symptoms associated with chronic bronchitis and emphysema, your condition may have progressed towards COPD.
Chronic bronchitis (Inhalation difficulties)
- Chest infections
- Frequent coughing
- Excessive mucus build up
Emphysema (Exhalation difficulties)
- Lack of mental clarity
- Shortness of breath at rest
- Lips/fingernails turn blue with exercise
Causes of COPD
COPD is caused by the long-term presence of irritants in the lungs. Airborne particles become lodged within the delicate lining of the lung tissue, leading to swelling and scarring over time. Depending on the nature of your employment, you may be at risk of long-term exposure to a variety of irritants.
Irritants linked to COPD
- Toxic fumes
- Chemical fumes
- Air pollution (e.g. car fumes)
- Cigarette smoke & second hand smoke
COPD is also closely associated with asthma. If you feel that your symptoms of COPD are linked to asthma, and if you believe that your asthma symptoms are directly linked to your past or present working conditions, speak to our expert solicitors today to discover whether you have a claim.
