Any one have shortness of breath with general labor, nothing real heavy?

I had an X-ray done as well as a pulmonary function test.

The X-rays report is,

Lungs are hyper inflated with flattening of the diaphragms. Heart size is normal. Pulmonary vessels are unremarkable. Lungs are clear, Interstitial markings are slightly prominent. No gross pleural reaction is seen. Early changes are detected in the lower dorsal segment.

My PCP, states mild hyperinflation, possible OPD issues, waiting on PFT results.

PFT results are that im good according to there test, waiting on them to send records to me.

35 years old, used to smoke, quit 5 years ago, except for one here and there.

Did vertical construction in Abu Ghraid, BIOP, Anaconda Iraq and Route Clearance is Eastern Afghanistan.

Psych doctor told me 90% of the psych meds can cause brething problem. For me hyperinflation is from using inhaler with some of the lung powders you inhale. Forgot the name of them. A hard lesson for me to learn.
