Another trip to the hospital,,,

Well i had my appointment early this morning with Dr Docherty my pulmonary doc for the results of xrays and heart scans,,good news that all where clear, heart of a teenager,,wish i could walk like one,,and x,rays clear as a bell,,so they have decided that my breathing problems are caused by me having rhumatoid arthritus,,and emphysema,,,so life carries on as normal, well as normal as i can make it,,carry on with the inhalers and go back in 6 months,,,luckily i see Dr Helliwell at the end of the month so maybe he will explain what is going on re the rhumatoid and breathing,,,,does anybody else suffer this problem?
