This week I had a lung function test (I suffer from Scleroderma - Connective Tissue Disorder) and although I am coughing badly I can happily report that my lungs are just as they were 4 years ago.
However I picked up one of your leaflets on Asthma and I think that my coughing may be an asthma attack (according to the leaflet that is) BUT during the lung function test they gave me a blue pump which made me feel very light headed, my hands go white with pins and needles, oxygen levels drop, and my heart race. The lady stated that I did not look well. I was sent to my GP but he says I must wait for the results of a chest xray I had 2 weeks ago (also organised by my Rheumataologist) before they do anything. Surely if anything showed up on the Xray they would have reported it by now - meanwhile I'm left in limbo.
Any advice? I could really do with a good nights sleep!
