I was diagnosed with late onset Asthma 3 years ago, but even now I still don't know when it's bad enough to call A&E. I'm the old school where you ""just get on with it"" and tend not to like to bother people. Have an Asthma plan by the way, but stilll can't tell!!!
I have a lot of episodes of very bad wheezing and I will take my rescue inhaler, then another puff if it carries on etc but at times I can be wheezy all day then the next day it's as if nothing has happened. Two weeks ago I went down out surgery, couldn't get to see the Asthma nurse, she was ill, anyway one of the other nurses checked me and my Sats were 93 (ok I think) and my chest was clear but the wheeze was so bad she put me on Pred. Sorry for the ramble but can anyone tell me if I should have gone to A&E when I was just as described. When do you call the emerency, what do you do, do you wait till you get worse than me? I am exhausted most of the time.
