I am an asthmatic who started to experience severe breathlessness about 4 months ago. Never experienced the like before. Inhalers didn't help ...
Chest x-ray showed abnormalities and CT confirmed that but my consultant (who is very nice and helpful), phoned the other day to tell me that he and two colleagues still can't provide a definitive diagnosis! Although there is clearly something wrong with my lungs. Consultant is going to refer me to his colleague at Papworth, and it looks like I will need a lung biopsy.
I am surprised that two chest consultants and a radiologist could not diagnose using such sophisticated tools!
I would love to speak to anyone who has experienced this rather unusual situation!
Thank you, x
