Today I heard from the doctor that I may have Bronchiolitis. I've had chest pains for about 3 years and despite having numerous xrays, lung capacity and spirometry tests nothing came up, so was just told it was muscle related and to get on with it.
So 3 years later I went back again and todays xray shows I have enlarged bronchi at the base of my right lung. The doctor while doing some tests asked me to put my fingers together. I didnt know why...until I got home and googled. She was checking for Schamroth's Sign. I think I failed, mainly because the gap in my fingers is now tiny, but also because she muttered 'interesting' when she saw my fingers.
So I've done some googling. I'm guessing the pictures online are the extreme cases, but I want to know if I have the early onset. Is there anyway I can tell?
By doing the test again I can see there is a small amount of gap on my forefingers. Its big enough to let light through, but not big enough to see through. All my other fingers have a gap big enough to see through.
