how old are you?

why did you get the chest xray?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am 53 years old. The xray was taken at a radiology office
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The dr ordered the xray because of my trouble breathing (5 weeks now)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have been on amoxicillin, biaxin, and 3 different inhalers (the last being a ventilin/steroid)
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.

that chest xray is just an AP film. you still need a lateral film for a complete study.

that AP film looks normal.

you need a pulmonary function test to check for asthma.

do you have excessive anxiety? this can cause trouble breathing symptoms.

do you have asthma?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have a plum function test scheduled for tomorrow. I have no asthma or anxiety . Five weeks ago I quite sick with a respitory infection, on Sept the 5th, the dr had viewed an xray, and said my rh lung was dull of bronchitis. Then the radiologist report and xray showed clear lung I'm afraid there was a mix up mi have fluid that will come up from breathing, I loose breath speaking, walking, and I have fluid that will come up on occasion , but I can't cough anything up my lungs feel like I can't get a cull breath
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
