Last year end of January 2014, I found that I had very mild emphysema. Now recently I had a breathing test which showed no asthma at all.

Either the tests are wrong or they are not properly evaluated. This is very nutty. I have had asthma for over 30 years and always showed up to have moderate asthma, sometimes severe.

What do you think?

Can you get a second opinion on the evaluation? Did they change the standards of what qualifies as asthma? Or are your medications keeping it that well under control? So many questions!

Yes I can get another evaluation but it would cost a lot of money. The standards are the same and medications are the same. I just don't think they know what they are doing. Perhaps the equipment was faulty,
