HelloThis is a different expert.I am a double board certified clinical: hands on: doctor.To make sure, she needs pulmonary function testing.This is a set of measurements made blowing through a special tube into a machine.This will confirm asthma.And people can get over asthma by the way.The specialists who typically do testing are allergists, and pulmonologists.Please click a positive.Let me know if you have more questions.
