I have allergic asthma. I feel really sick (dizziness, tight chest, cough) but I never have a pulse ox below 98 so PCPs don't take it seriously. Do I really need a $1K consult with a pulmonologist?

I have allergic asthma. I feel really sick (dizziness, tight chest, cough) but  I never have a pulse ox below 98 so PCPs don't take it seriously. Do I really need a $1K consult with a pulmonologist?

Possible: Did you have influenza diagnosed with a flu test or are you just assuming from symptoms; By 6 days you should start to feel better eventhough cough can hang on for 2 weeks or so. Pneumonia can be a complication of influenza. You should be seen especially if you were not seen initially for these symptoms. ...Read more
