I am a 58 year old female, smoked for many years but gave up 23 years ago. I had a bad episode with my breathing after having tonsillitus in Feb this year. My doctor has told me i have asthma! I have had a spyrometry test done, results were all normal. i had previously had an xray showing my lungs were larger than normal but otherwise clear. Although my breathing and chest have eased a lot over the months i still have a crackle on inhaliing and a wheeze (sort of) when exhaling. My lungs feel as though the last third has been cut off, just cant exhale as i used to. I do get out of breath slightly when walkiing. I have a blue inhaler and to be honest i don't kknow if it helps. Should i ask for further tests? i am beginning to get get worried over not being diagnosed properly and not getting the correct treatment which can slow down copd.
