I agree. I am in the middle of a full cardiac work up because I have been having increasingly worse shortness of breath (especially with exertion), BP issues (except mine is low BP), palpitation/PVCs and none of my asthma meds seem to be helping and while my PFTS numbers have gotten slightly worse, it's not bad enough to explain my symptoms.

I would definitely go to a cardiologist in addition to a pulmonologist in your situation.

And yes, having pneumonia can definitely affect PFTs. My numbers plummet whenever I have pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma attack or allergic reaction.
