      well it started off as a tightness in my chest. the er doctor said it was my sphincter not my gallbladder as I thought. she prescribed Ventolin abd Atrovent. my doctor said it may be a hiatal hernia. I am coughing quite a bit. No real wheezing though. My lung function test us this afternoon. No asthma prior to this.
