A.J. is scheduled to have an exercise test this week, which I assume is something like a stress test. Its to see if his lungs are functioning correctly. Anyone ever had this done?

Haven't had one but I'm supposed to go for one. Have had the referral in my car for about six months :)

Been very busy and it's regarding exercise induced Asthma which has got progressively better as I've exercised more. Had a couple of attacks in the last week or two at the gym but that was largely due to being in a smoky environment a short time before.

My son had it at his allergist office. They had him run around outside and come in and do a lung function test and to see if he started to cough or wheeze after he exercised. They listen to his lungs to check for wheezing. It' no biggie. :)
