My husband has COPD.
He had a major event at Christmas. Respiratory distress. Spent a week dead to the world on a mechanical ventilation, until he removed himself physically disconnecting it.
A total of 3&1/2 weeks in the hospital.
His primary doctor says it is all anxiety.
He blows a 88 or less and is on oxygen, even though doctor wants him off.
This is not a pulmonalogist.
He also says to not use the nebulizer, because that should be saved for when he cannot breathe.
Very stressful

Sounds it! Do you plan on getting a second opinion?
