At the pulmonologist's office, they did four different types of breathing tests on a big fancy machine that whirred and clicked and a big clear drum moved up and down when I breathed. No spirometer, Dale.
And the doctor reviewed the results with me and said my lung function is great. I was surprised and relieved, of course. Btw, he said several of his patients have mentioned "becominganex.com" to him. That was cool.
But he said that cardiac problems can also cause my symptoms. Yikes. So now I need to made appointments to go have a bunch of heart tests.
Thanks for all the support, you guys! It means A LOT to me.
