I am frustrated. I went to a specialist today who was a pulmonologist. I told him I was having a lot of shortness of breath and he said that my pulmonary test looks fine and that he isn't sure if I have asthma. I told him I had it as a child and he said "If you actually did have it as a child", which I didn't know what that meant. He said he wants to do a methacholine challenge test. Has anyone done it? It sounds hard.
I asked him why I would wheeze if I didn't have asthma, or why I would have a dry cough, or why I would have an asthma attack and have my peak flows go so low. He said peak flows aren't an accurate measure for asthma. I asked why my breathing gets alot worse when I get sick. I should have asked why abuterol would stop my wheeze if I didn't have asthma. Oh well, I go see an allergist tommorow.
If anyone has done the test can you tell me about what happened?
