I smoke 4-5 packs per day and have this cough that lasts all day. I produce a lot of plem with each cough, it is sometimes a mouthful of plegm and I have to swallow it because there is no where to spit. I also wheeze a lot all day long and get out of breath doing something simple like walking to the kitchen or rolling over in the bed.
I have a CPAP machine because I have sleep apnea, during my testing the doctor said I stopped breathing about 2 times per minute and it was the worst he had seen or read about.
I've been smoking like this for more than 30 years. All those nicotine replacement therapies I get a serious rash or anaphylatic shock.
Drugs like Chaintix cause my blood pressure to go 250/200 and I have transient aschemic attacks multiple time an hour. So there is nothing for me except cold turkey.
But does anyone here think I might have STAGE 4 Lung Cancer or something as bad?
