      man i went to a pulmonologist 2 weeks ago and my spirometry was normal he ruled out anything lung related and today my spirometry was slightly abnormal what the heck also had long lungs he said it wsd because of my height but long lungs/ hyperinflated lungs can be from actual problems

    Have you seen a cardiologist? Did your pulmonologist do an echo of your heart? Or sleep monitor? Your heart can cause difficulty breathing.
