I'm still confused!!

Help! lol. I'm still confused as to exactly what is going on....I probably need to see my doctor again, but before I do I was wondering if you guys had anything thoughts.

So long story short...Dr. is pretty sure I have asthma, mild case. I did a lung function test in January after having some bad shortness of breath and chest heaviness..coughing (think that was it) Anyway the tech said yeah your lungs look good UNTIL he administered the Albuterol...then he said something like "whoa wait there is a significant change" I left there pretty sure they found the a call from dr. he said the pulmonologist said everything is fine..I told him what the tech said...blah blah blah. ....anyway Dr. is pretty sure I have a mild case of Asthma ..he gave me an inhaler. I used it in the winter and didn't even think of it again till BOOM this heat and humidity knocked me down......

.BUT I guess my problem is I am always second guessing myself...why did the pulmonologist say everything looks fine and the tech said there was a big change? I could totally feel the albuterol working when I was given was like a literally weight had been taken off my chest.

I am ALWAYS congested, does that happen to some people with Asthma?
Sometimes my throat feels tight/fullness towards the bottom of it...
I had asthma/croup as a kid..ended up in hospital a couple times with it.
I never looked at my test results, can I just get those? Help lol, I'm confused...
