COPD symptoms

The symptoms and manifestations of COPD generally consist of obstruction of the airways and inflammation of the bronchial tubes.

The initial symptoms of COPD are shortness of breath (dyspnea), a chronic productive cough, and the production of sputum, especially in the mornings. Smokers often underestimate these symptoms, when these initial signs should lead them to see a doctor as quickly as possible.
