Hello everyone, my apologies if I am posting in the wrong place but I am new here. I was suffering with shortness of breath and my GP's Practice Nurse gave me a spirometry test showing I had Restrictive lung disease. That was last Wednesday and I haven't heard from the GP since.I am presuming the results are being looked at and would hope for a chest Xray at least in the near future. I have suffered with allergic asthma for many years which I have looked up and found asthma would be classified as Obstructive lung disease not Restrictive. Of course I have been online and have worried myself silly as the prognosis seems to be poor and I am also confused as to whether my asthma could have caused these results as I was quite tight and wheezy at the time of the spirometry test. I am 54 years old and would really appreciate any advise or support. Thank you.
