I am just back from a hospital appointment this afternoon where I had a series of lung function tests to try to discover why I have been experiencing breathing difficulties over the past several months.
The good news is that I do not have asthma nor any other serious problem. It seems that my constant hay-fever type allergies (I suffer all year long not just in the summer) has led to a build up of fluid in the smaller airways and that is what is causing my symptoms.
That's OK then. I can breathe a little easier now (see what I did there?).
