About a year ago I tried pot for the first time at uni and the next day I got a tightness in my chest and a very slight wheeze, a few weeks later I got the 'freshers flu' and was really ill, had orange snot and a lot of phlegm and then stayed in student accommodation which was a bit moldy and had a moldy smell. I moved out and to this day I still have a constant wheeze when I exhale hard. I went to my local GP and took a peak flow test and my average is 500-530 (male 5'11) I went for a Armed Forces medical and the doctor there said I was fit and fine and had a peak flow of 550-560 that day even with a wheeze. I always thought it was mold from the pot I smoked and I suffered this wheeze and tight chest the next day. So I went and got a spit sample and they said they couldnt find anything wrong with it. I dont want to use an inhaler or be diagnosed with Asthma cause its a bar for the trade I want to go in for the forces. What do you think the problem could be? I'm certain it must be mold.
Asthma can be triggered by certain allergens. Mold could be a triggering factor. This is more so if repeated attacks have occurred with exposure to mold. As the spirometry tests are normal, you are unlikely to have asthma symptoms now. However to prevent attacks in future you can take steroid inhalers.
