I have a question maybe someone can help me with. I have had two PFTs done. One without Methacholine and one with it. Not only were both "normal", the one with Methacholine was "abnormally" normal (story of my life). The dr said that most people even if they dont have asthma have some reaction by the last dose of the medicine. I had NO reaction....
But, my dr gave me an albuterol inhaler anyway....and guess what? It works fantastic...I can be coughing up a storm day and night and two puffs and I am good to go for 24 to 48 hours.....since I definitely dont have asthma this is confusing me as to why it works so well.
Has anyone else had this work for them without being asthmatic? Or better yet, can someone tell me why it works so well?
I just had my first gallium scan done last week (i am still not dx)...I get my results in a couple days. I can feel my lymph nodes throughout my entire body...even in my stomach...I hope I get an answer...either way dr has finally agreed to do a biopsy, I am just not sure where yet. Cant do the hilar ones in the chest because they would have to open me up but they have plenty of others to choose from..lol
thanks to all for being there for me...I dont know what I would have done without this site over the last several months.
