    Has anyone had this test recommended as a result of exercise intolerance/shortness of breath on exertion? If so, was it painful, and did it reveal anything?

    I've had ABG tests done when I've had to attend hospital for my asthma. Pain levels depend on the level of experience and competence of the person doing the procedure.
    What it does is tell them if you're getting enough oxygen into your bloodstream.
