calypso Posted November 23, 2005 Report Share Posted November 23, 2005 I just wanted to report on the pulmonary function tests I had done a week ago. I don't have the official results yet, but the technician, who was great, told me everything looked very normal.No big surprise. I always look normal!I did the thing where you sit inside the phone booth thing and blow really hard at various points into a tube, then at one point she directed some sort of helium/CO2/O2 combo into my lungs to see how well it circulated and how much of it I blew back out. It was very interesting.Still have no idea how I have been short of breath going on two years next week, but I am. And it sure doesn't feel "subjective," which is what my doctors have been suggesting all along. That doesn't make sense when I am running out of air when I talk more than a sentence or lift my toddler daughter up. But maybe I just don't know anymore. I guess I'm one of those people who needs to re-learn how to breathe. I know someone here has mentioned that Mayo always tells people with POTS that that can happen.Not much else new. Oh, I have been fighting a virus for a week now that involves a sore throat, body aches and extreme exhaustion. But I think I'll live.Just thought I'd share. Hope everyone has a nice holiday. You are all absolutely great.Amy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
