I have just returned from Wales where I have been camping with college.
On the 2nd night (Friday night) I had an attack at 2:30am which didnt improve so I was nebed with my portable. All fine until Sunday night 9pm when I started whezzing and cheast tightness took blue inhaler no better after 1 hr then the coughing started bout 15 mins later my head went light and I was really dizzy. Was told to do the head beween the legs thing no better then had whitsling noise in ears and could have sworn there was a helicopter (there wasnt). I then started blacking out so I have been told. My lecterer rang NHS Direct as she didnt think this was right and for that reson didnt want to neb even though I was still whezing ect. At 1am ambluenece took me to hospital which took 2 hrs (accident on way!!) should have taken 1 hr! Arrived at bout 3 didnt have ops or anythign other thern being put in cobicle unitl 6 am.
When the doc eventally came cheast clear BP normally, heart rate norm.
Is Blacking out like this normal with asthma? Also what stage should you neb at?
