It's funny how your body reacts to asthma. With me i feel breathless or start coughing, take medication if it works fine. But if it doesen't your body seems to go into overdrive - well mine does anyway, run for freshair. Next if the ventolin does not seem to be working take more doses and peakflow. By this time i start to feel panic. I also get pins and needles anywhere in body and feel asthough somone has got my head in a vice. So the cycle goes on .......... Also how long should you leave it before calling 999? I would hate calling them and then feeling not so bad but then on the other hand its the unknown if the attack restarted again. Also where i live we are about 40 minutes from the nearest hospital.
Has anyone else felt like this or is it me panicking as in horse bolted before stable door locked!! sorry my sense of humour!!!!
