Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Message Board


Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index


Same story here. It happens mostly in the evening,(it's happening right now). I noticed it in Jan. of this year, so i went to my GP. He took x-rays and it showed some scarring so I went and had a CT scan of the chest. It came back normal. I also noticed shortness of breath. I even had a nucleur stress test on my heart and it was normal. I went to a pulmonologist and he says I have no allergies, asthma, COPD, etc. He said my lungs sounded clear. The first time I saw him , I breathed an 86 on my lung capacity test. I've seen him about 5 times and I've tested as low as 68, but he said that wasn't low enough to cause concern. I did find out that I need surgery on my Cervical Spine. C4-C5, C5-C6, & C6-C7. 3 level ACDF.(Fusion) My neurologist said that sometimes C4 has an effect on your respiratory system. When I have my surgery, I'm hoping It will help with my breathing. I hate the feeling of not being able to take a normal, deep breath. It makes you panic and that only worsens the problem. I've had about every test and they say everything is normal (except my neck). Maybe someday we'll get an answer.
