    Another 'do I have asthma?' - spirometry result is bad, have allergies, but no wheezing or coughing

    33 y/o female ex smoker. I took the spirometry test for four times and all showed I have breathing issues. I also have dust mite allergy and get nasal congestion/stuffy nose pretty frequently. I took a blood test too, I'm not anemic. My chest x-ray and heart test were fine. I never cough, have no wheezing. But I do have shortness of breath though that gets worse sometimes. Chest tightness as well. It doesn't get worse because I move around. My doctor is confused too. She says her 'guess'....
