    Problems breathing

    i've never been diagnosed with asthma or breathing issues. but i do have difficulties breathing and catching my breath sometimes and some coughing. sometimes i can't catch my breath because the stairs feel like i was climbing a mountain. sometimes it feels like someone is sitting on my chest and that i can't fully breathe. i was an cigarette smoker for years but i quit over a year ago. asthma and COPD also runs in my family. i have a doctors appointment in a few weeks. i've had breathing issues for awhile been never had it checked. i don't want my doctor to tell me there's nothing wrong and do nothing for me, when i am having issues. i would like to know what questions i should ask them and what they could possibly do for me to ensure that i get proper help with this. thank you.
