I went to see a pulmonolgist b/c i was having shortness of breath. A tech had me do a spriogram which the tech said the results were "normal and i had nothing to worry about" The pulmonologist said that he thinks my breathing problems are probably because of anxiety. I have read his reprt which says "CT of the chest showed mild interstitial prominence without any focal infiltrates. Spirogram was within normal limits." I asked the dr. what the heck "showed mild interstitial prominence without any focal infiltrates meant and he said "i'm fine and dont worry and i have to much anxiety" but he never answered my question on just what the heck it is and what it means. I tried looking it up online but i'm too confused and nervous. Please help me understand what this means.
