Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
This is a lung disease that blocks the airflow, causing difficulty in breathing. COPD is commonly associated with bronchitis and emphysema, referring to damage in the lung tissues. This condition constantly produces mucus, accompanied by coughing. Shortness of breath is one of the signs that your condition is getting worse.
Allergies are triggered through interactions with foreign substances that your body recognizes as harmful. Your body will produce antibodies to eliminate it, but this also causes other symptoms. Reactions to allergies vary from person to person. If severe, symptoms include unconsciousness, too much difficulty breathing, rapid but weak pulse, nausea, and dropping blood pressure levels.
