Exam: Although you may be suffering from a panic disorder it is also very possible that you may have a pulmonary disorder associated with smoking. Smoking is the primary cause of preventable disease and death worldwide. Lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including emphysema and chronic bronchitis, are among considerations. I suggest you have a complete exam at a medical clinic
