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

3. Floroscophy

4. Broncostophy

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.

MY STORY,

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?
