12 Symptoms of COPD

5. Coughing.

Some of the early signs and symptoms of COPD (if you are lucky enough to get signs and symptoms) often includes a cough that is lingering and chronic for no other apparent reason. Usually, a cough is caused by some respiratory issue that causes the body to want to eliminate any foreign compounds from the windpipe. If you are currently not ill from any cold, then a chronic and lingering cough could suggest that there is something wrong. Consider talking with your doctor if you notice that you have a cough that just will not go away as this could be a sign of a lung problem.
