This is Dr. David

it sounds like you haven't taken very good care of your body.

smoking cigarettes and pot will cause irritation of your lungs and put tar and nicotine and smoke and carcinogens into your lungs.

you are probably feeling mucus plugs and airway irritation from your prior smoking.

you need to stop smoking and eat healthier and start to exercise to become healthier.

you can change your lifestyle

if you continue to smoke and eat unhealthy, you will end up with health issues, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer

you can see a doctor now and get pulmonary function tests, CT scans again.

I bet they won't show cancer

but your doctor will again tell you to quit smoking and to exercise and to eat healthier.

let me know if you have questions.

Health Professional: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

you have to quit smoking and eat healthier first.

you might be depressed.

you should see a doctor to see if you would benefit from antidepression medications

you might benefit from seeing a therapist as well.

your doctor can refer you to see a therapist.

are you willing to see a doctor?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
