I have been diagnosed with Unilateral Diaphragmatic Paralysis / a paralyzed diaphragm.
How can I get my Phrenic nerve tested to see if it even works?
I have seen a pulmanary specialist and he is the person that has made my diagnosis,
Tests done to date are as of 2-28-08 ( Just a guess on the spelling )
1. Breathing tests
2. CT scans
5. X rays
I am not ready to call it a day yet!, I would like to get some advice on my next step to become normal again.
This appears to me that they can not pin point what caused this.
Snow shoveling 12-22-07, heavy, wet, snow, 2.5 hours of snow shoveling, after all the shoveling, back spasams, pain right side of back, upper and mid, 2 weeks on IBU proffien to survive the days and nights with all the pain and spasams that I was having. I am a runner, 4 days prior to this between my daughters hockey game I ran 1.5 hours of a light jog. That day of the 22 of December, I took a quick run after the snow shoveling for a quick workout, I got to the end of the block and I could not breathe for the first time, I had no idea what was instore after that run, It is not good, I need help!
What is my next step to figure out what my options are?
