i have had asthma for quite a long time but on the weekend, I had symptoms which i havnt had before.
I suddenly became very wheezy and couldnt stop coughing without any symptoms leading up to this. I could hardly draw breath and couldnt even get enough breath to use the ventolin. I then vomited. EEK!, i was really scared as my husband was away and I was worried about how I would manage to look after the children.
After much panicking i used my nebuliser with two nebs which seemed to help.
I saw the asthma nurse today and she has checked my peak flow today which is 60-70% of my normal rate and I feel fine now.
She has given me some more nebs, just in case and i have to go back in a week.
It really worried me that an asthma attack could happen so quick with no symptoms leading up to this and also vomiting, thats new to me.
I asked the nurse if this change was an age related issue but she didnt think so.
Any advise would be much appreciated.
