Asthma or no? What else can I do?
For the past couple weeks I have been noticing that I get windy very easily, and I occasionally feel like I need to gasp for air (as if my normal breathing just isn't giving me enough oxygen). I went to the doctor last week to discuss this and to have repeat chest x-rays (I had pneumonia 6 weeks ago). My pneumonia is gone, and there is no wheezing. The doctor said that my lung function was bad (all I did was blow into this plastic thing that makes the red triangle shoot up, idk what this is called), and that my asthma is making it worse. She also said that I have bronchitis. The problem is, I have no chest congestion, barely any coughing, and I was never diagnosed with asthma prior to this visit. She gave me Ventolin this time, which makes me feel very weak and dizzy. I often feel worse when I take it, and I don't notice any real improvement in my lung capacity. Can anyone make any other suggestions? Are there any other tests that I should be getting done? And could my heart murmur be related to this at all? Thank you in advance!
Ps. I'm in my late 20s and I quit smoking 3 months ago
