My GP has confirmed that I have been referred for spirometry. I also have been prescribed an inhaler. Does anyone know very roughly how long the waiting list is for a spirometry test e.g. weeks, months or years?
Also, I have anaemia. I have probably been anaemic for a long time, and this is despite taking iron supplements. I know anaemia can increase breathlessness, but can emphysema (which is what is suspected) also cause or worsen anaemia?
