My mouth was filled with a mouthpiece hooked up to a pulmonary function testing machine, or I would have said, "It's breathe normally!" And that's how my Thursday afternoon went. The pulmonary function test showed no decrease in lung functioning, no evidence of blockage or COPD, and nothing else beyond what I've known for years: I have pretty severe, chronic asthma, and I live in a terrible place to have severe, chronic asthma. They're going to try a new inhaler for me. Meanwhile, things are stable!! Here's a good song title about being an asthmatic

I've done that test a few times after being diagnosed with walking pneumonia. I hope your tech was better at his/her job than at grammar, lol! Ah well, no one is expert at everything, eh?

I'm sorry your have asthma, it is not easy to control. When I was younger I had allergies and often couldn't breath normally, ( but not asthma) as I aged I lost all my allergies except grass - the only reason I know that is a doctor asked me to get tested before he did surgery on me.

Great balls of fire! You survived the test with no dire results meaning you can continue doing a whole lotta shaking goin' on at concerts.

Glad to hear that the test turned out fine, no obstructions and hope the new inhaler works out. Yes sometimes it is funny to ask you to breath normally when they place you in a not so normal condition or situation

I have done that test before when I was trying to find out why I was always tired and the same out come showed nothing for me either. But hope the new inhaler works for you better.
