I went for breathing test and they said my oxygen was in the 80 to low. They put me on pulmicort flexhaler 180 four times twice daily. They ran a ct scan and walking test they were normal. What could be my problem.?I feel fatigued alot. I have been going weekly for breathing tests. What should I be asking my doctor if he has not diagnosed me yet?What could be my problem?
By breathing tests, do you mean pulse oximetry where they put a finger probe on to measure your oxygenation or do you mean spirometry where you blow into a machine that measures FEV1 (volume of air pushed out forcefully over 1 minute....you take the deepest breath you can and blow, hard)?
