I went to my doctor yesterday who was supposed to test me for asthma. The nurse who administered the test had be blow into a spirometer hooked up to a computer. The nurse who did the test kept having me blow over and over into this meter and said I wasnt doing it right.
She got an attitude with me and acted like I was purposely messing the test up. I was blowing as hard as I could and doing exactly as she said! I started to hyperventilate about 10 times and she would have to let me rest. Finally the nurse just said they would use the recordings I had done even though the computer wouldnt accept them.
The doctor came in a few minutes later, looked at the computer for like 10 seconds and said I dont have asthma. Does this sound like an accurate test to anyone? How can I be sure I really dont have asthma?
This nurse made me hyperventilate so much that I feel like I can't remember things really quickly. It's taking me a few seconds to remember names of some people. Is this normal after hyperventilation? How long should this "memory loss" last?
