    I did this test 2days ago. Just about pushed me right over the edge. Ended up having to stay until things were somewhat back to normal..1.5hr test was 6hour stay. Did however find out that yeah I have asthma ... extremely sensitive airways!!! Still tired, head still hurts and lungs, chest, ribs, back etc hurt too. I know this is just part of the game, have to do this stuff to get answers, but I so could of lived with out it!!

    Rather whining this evening so dont mind me, just thought I would share my experience so that if you are going to do this test you might have some idea. I know many folks dont have it quite that hard of a time but I did.

    Here is to a better day tomorrow
