I need advice on who to turn to next.
My recent bodyplesmography tests continue to reveal restiction as well as obstruction in my lungs. Currently, I am being treated for mixed form asthma, sleep apnoea due to significatly elevated AHI due to sleep disordered breathing. I know that this is an umbrella term but my consultant seems reluctant to break it down further. Other doctors have said that my brain is not providing the signal to my respiratiry muscles.
CPAP is definatetly helping my sleep apnoea however my concern is more about my lung function tests which continously demonstrate restriction. I asked my respiratory consultant ( a young professor) if I have any other lung disease other than asthma and he responded after much deliberation with an unconfident sounding no.
Where does that leave me, the PFT results suggests otherwise ... Any suggestions?
