Suggest Treatment For Wheezing

Dear Doctor, I have taken medical tests and x-ray at GAMCA,but they said that x-ray is showing some problem and asked me to take novaclox tablet for 5 days and take re x-ray,the second x-ray is also not cleared and they have asked me to take ct-scan.in this stage i went to a private hospital and taken x-ray,but doctor says my x-ray is normal.(i have wheezing which if i use inhalers at the time will clear off).is there any chance that my ct-scan will show any scars?

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Thanks for your question on HCM. CT scan is far better imaging technique than chest x ray for evaluation of lung parenchyma. So it is possible to have CT findings like scar even if your chest x ray is normal.
I also advice you to get done pulmonary function test (PFT) and consult pulmonologist for better control of your wheezing.
