Good Afternoon Guys,
I am a tall skinny 6ft 2 guy, and recently had a chest infection that took 3 lots of antibiotics to get rid of. I had an x-ray and they said I had very slight Hyperinflated Lungs. My doctor advised me to go have a Sprimetry test but I cannot get an appointment for another 3 weeks.
I paid today to go to a private clinic whic in my view was a waste of time as the machine they had was electronic and did not look to proffesional but until i get to go to have a proper one done these reults are all i have. I am worried sick that I have COPD, the doctor said I did not from the results and I do not understand how to read them any help would be appreciated. (Like I say i did not trust the machine)
I blew 4 times my Fev 1 readings were 80% 78% 84% 87%
Fev1/fev6 = 0.72 or 92%
FVC6 = 5.37 OR 96%
He also made me blow on a flow cone ? for asthma to test this and this came at 650 which again he said was fine
I am so worried please could someone help to ease my mind or tell me straight if I have COPD
