I get a lot of problems, esp in winter, with my asthma being badly irritated and get a lot of pain at my lungs but yesterday I took my first actual asthma attack in a long long time. I hadn't felt completely right for a few days and as I got to the train station for work I could not get a breath, felt really dizzy, tight and saw black spots in front of my eyes. Honestly thought I was going to pass out. Kept taking my inhaler all the way to work and it finally eased enough to be able to just go to work but I had bad chest pain and pain at my lungs and breathlessness all day and still feel sore and breathless today.
I do not know how people who take proper attacks all the time cope. I think I found it quite scary as it usually does not happen to me. I feel like my asthma has gone down hill for the past 2 years and got gradually worse, ever since I had pneumonia. Just wondering if having something such as pneumonia can make your asthma permanently worse
