Hi. How exactly did you have your breathing checked?

And how long has this been going on?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I had it checked by my GP by blowing into something 3 times

It has been there for some months now

OK. Can you tell me more about being breathless please--are you saying that you're constantly breathing rapidly even at rest?

And did your doctor note this rapid breathing and did he both listen to your lungs and get a chest x-ray?
