Cannot take in or blow out a lot of air (had to do multiple tries on spirometer test), recent chest pain/discomfort, extreme fatigue. Dry cough, but have some mucus--especially waking or with exertion. History of venous insufficiency, asthma, overweight. I'm only 49, but feel like 80, and interfering with life. Is this pulmonary, cardiac, or venous? I have limited income, so want to choose testing carefully! Please help!
