Hi, Makaliadenny,
Thanks for query.
As you have consulted Pulmonologist and all tests are normal, it indicates that it might be due to some allergy.
Try to find out allergen and elevate it.
Important is that he should go for deep respiratory breathing exercise daily 10 minutes in the morning and evening.
Use Spirometer for deep breathing exercise.
This will help a lot.
OIk and bye.
