COPD can be measured... people with it have decreased lung capacity.  Did you do one of those test where you breath into a device? Did they measure your 02 on your finger.  Normal anxiety suffers breathe too much causing hyperventilation...which feels like shortness of breath.

BTW its normal to be out of breath when climbing steps if your out of shape.  I have a townhouse and hate climbing steps.  Its fine to be out of breathe as long as you don't faint.
