After two years monitoring my shortness of breath decided to
see the doctor. Will go 4-5 months without any symptoms. So far
seem to last 1 or 2 months and go away. Symptom believe are
related to emotional stress. Physical work, allergies, time of
season doesn't seem to trigger. When symptons do happen control
with breathing soft deep breaths and drinking lots of green tea.
Went to doctor and he ordered ChestXray,EKG ,Heart Stress Test,
Spirometry ,Monoxide diffusing,Bronchial Provocation, Blood Test
of TSH FreeT4 CBC Lipid Profile Total Cholesterol Venipunture
All these procedures will cost $7000 My insurance is 5000 deductible
Don't think any of these procedures are necessary. I've monitored
it myself and concluded it was asma and have under control.
Which test would you perform if any??????Thanks for any input.....
