Brief Answer:
Please do a chest X-ray.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I can understand your concern.

As you explain the history it would be better for you to do a chest X-ray, a CPR blood test because the lungs should be evaluated in such conditions.

Please discuss with your doctor for the above or you can attach me the results and i will try to help you again.

Hope to have been helpful.

Take care.
