More information pls: COPD patients typically will produce more sputum or mucus when they cough. Your symptoms may be either but without a history of smoking, asthma is more likely. Since you have had a PFT , asking for the FEV1/FVC ratio will help your physician determine whether there is a component of restriction as well. ...Read more

Tough to know: However, if you have allergic asthma then you may have allergic rhinitis as well. Inflammation of the nasal airway can contribute significantly to snoring (and asthma would not, unless you are wheezing and not snoring).
