Considering your long term history of marijuana smoking, you are at a high risk of suffering from COPD
(Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
). Smoking is also a risk factor for GERD(Gastro esophageal reflux disease
). You need to immediately get yourself evaluated by a Pulmonologist / Chest Physician. Investigations required are chest xray and pulmonary function test. Based on the evaluation you may be started on Inhalers and oral medications. Smoking cessation
is the cornerstone of therapy. unless you quit smoking for life, no medicine will benefit you. Smoking related decline in lung function never reverts back to normal but after quitting smoking we can slow the decline of lung functions. Also smoking has placed you at a high risk of many diseases and lung cancer
is one of them . You need to quit smoking.
