I am a smoker in the process of quitting. I went for a pft and the results were fev1 90,4 and fev1/fvc 89,2
I thaugt this was bad and therfore went to another doctor, the results was fev1 80% and fev1/fvc 77%.
This made me more worried so I went again. The last time i felt really anxious during the test. The nurse made me blow a lot of times because the result varied too much. The worst result was fev1 88% and fev1/fvc 66%. So she gave me an inhaler and i blow three more times, this time all efforts were mostly the same, fev1 95% and fev1/fvc 76%. The doctor said this was normal and sign of no disease. My problem is i dont know what to believe. I am scared my lungs are too damaged, this fear eats me up and make me smoke even more. Does anyone know why the results are so unlike. Can anxiety be the reason?
Hope someone will answer!!
