Asthma

Question
Posted by: Matthew Piacente | 2019/07/24

Q.

Can asthma be misdiagnosed?

I was recently having shortness of breath and chest pains. I would get out of breath easily after mild exertion as well. I went and had a PFT done and was diagnosed with asthma. I am 30 and I don't have a history of asthma. After a few months of using the prescribed inhaler I still was having the same issues. I went to see a cardiologist and it was discovered that I have 30% stenosis myocardial bridging of my LAD. My breathing feels much better now that I am on a beta blocker, but I am not sure if I ever truly had asthma or if I was misdiagnosed because of my underlying heart condition.
