Hi Colleen, yes it was two times in 6 weeks. It was my first experience. They said they thought it was caused by anxiety and I had a panic attack. First time with panic attack and I thought I was having a heart attack. Thanks so much for the quick reply. I am getting better every day!

@marley1– I would also like to welcome you to Mayo Connect. What an excellent question. The exacerbation can take a toll on your lungs (it's inflammation) and it can take a while to heal. It looks like you are seeing this yourself.

What symptoms did you have that put you in the hospital? Have you had COPD for a while?
