After what I thought was a panic attack at 4am thursday morning, turns out it was an asthma attack. Ive got a honking cold and cough, been given steroids (6 to take for 5 days) and a reliever aerosol. I find that after about 4 hours from the last time I used the inhaler my chest starts to tighten and I cough more, also its only mild relief, is this normal? I had a had night of coughing last night also, so had to take my inhaler at 4am! Ive got an appointment with the asthma nurse for next friday, should I ask to see her sooner?
