A little over two months ago I took a pulmonary function test and when I saw my primary physician he referred me to a lung specialist. When I saw the specialist, he told me that my chest x-ray was clear and from the pulmonary test it says I have a hard time taking a deep breath. Also, He told me that it may due to I gained some weight and He schedule for me to have a lung scan because he told me wanted to see my lungs. i am a non-smoker and ever since I broke my nose years ago, I been having problems breathing through my nose. I have been seen by my ENT and he tolk me that I have to have nasal surgery so I can breathe. My question can my nose be causing my problems?
