PFT questions

I have shortness of breath and coughing. I also have allergies.

I had a PFT test. My doctor said there was nothing wrong. She said my symptoms are from allergies and/or GERD. She didn't want to any further testing or anything. She just said to take Singulair, pepcid, Zyrtec, and Astelin.

Here are my PFT results. What does this mean? Should I have further testing? She didn't really explain it to me.
"MVV is impaired at 45% of predicted. TLC is at 78%. ERV is reduced at 56%. A mild to borderline restrictive defect is present. Clinical and radiographic correlation is reccommended."

Thank you.
