I am 31, 5'7, and 75kg.
I have pluretic type pain (upper right abdo), as well as chest pain in centre of chest. when i lie down I feel short of breath so need to sleep sitting up! breathing feels like an effort, its like I cant get enough air in my lungs.
I am being investigated for an autoimmiune/ autoinflamatory condition, and as part of the investigations I was recently sent for a lung function test. I have not had the results back yet but struggled to complete the test (I had to keep on repeating the tests as I couldnt take in enough air to get a reading???) and had bad coughing fits after each exersise (I do not normaly have a cough).
I have also had a chest xray which was fine
I recently had a PIP assesment, as part of this I had to do a peak flow test. my best was 280 (almost collapsed after this and had major coughing fit). the nurse said 280 was very low.
I had asthma as a child, but dont feel like I have it now........... can anyone suggest what could be going on? could it be asthma?
