I have been visiting this forum for a while now - and have finally plucked up the courage to join in! I apologise in advance if my question seems a little 'old hat' to you all. But here goes.....
I have finally agreed to a referral from my long suffering GP to a chest cons, but i am now a little concerned as i have received paperwork informing me that i have to attend for 'pulmonary function tests' before i see him. I roughly understand what this means - but my peak flow measurements never seem to be that bad (pretty normal for age etc) even when my asthma is at its worst. So i am worried that when the cons sees my results he will just dismiss me as a bit of a fraud and i will not get the help that i need. I have to say that this is the main reason that i have not agreed to a referral sooner. Im quite worried about this and would really value anyone elses experiences/advice.
PS. i have also been asked to supply a urine sample - has anyone any ideas as to why??
