Re: PFT questions

Thank you for answering.

My primary care doctor ordered the PFT. I also saw a nurse at the clinic.

After I got the report, I spoke with the technician who did the test. She said I can have symptoms even if it's a mild restriction. She also said I need a specialist and possible further testing.

I tried talking to my PCP and the nurse, but they didn't listen. I had a chest X-ray in February. They said I didn't need another one or a CT scan. They didn't want to refer me to a specialist either. The nurse even asked me if I was anxious. I think she thought it mostly in my head.
