Question Advice for Pulmonology visit tomorrow

Tomorrow, I'm seeing my first specialist since all of these symptoms began. I am seeing a Pulmonologist because of my shortness of breath, pain in my lung area (no fluid, though) rapid heart rate, pain in neck/carotid arteries and pressure in chest. At first, the GP thought it was asthma, but I'm not so sure.
Does anyone have any suggestions or advice as to what I should be looking for or questions for the Pulmonologist? I'm having Pulmonary Function Testing tomorrow (May 1st).
Thanks all!
Gina

Re: Advice for Pulmonology visit tomorrow

Gina just wanted to wish you good luck tomorrow. My hubby had to see a pulmonologist right after his chemo treatments, but it seemed the doc did most of the talking to take a medical history. Then ordered more specific tests to be done. All tests came back negative have not had further experience with the pulmonologist.

I know I am not much help, but wanted to wish you luck. Keep us posted.

Re: Advice for Pulmonology visit tomorrow

Can anyone tell me if they've experienced "dry pleurisy" and if it shows up on a chest x-ray?
