@lillian32– A respiratory physician is called a Pulmonologist. When is your appointment?
Jump to this post
After my next lung function test is over. It depends on Covid whether the appointments are going ahead. My GP advised me to buy a pulse oxymeter for home and I’ve ordered one, it should arrive this week sometime.
I do get breathless but it’s not consistent. Sometimes I’m fine and then suddenly, out of the blue I have trouble catching my breath. It’s odd. I do have 1st degree heart block but that shouldn’t cause any symptoms.
