Since escaping from costa after 25 days early July Ive been plodding along - symptomatic every day and not doing particularly well but holding my own- until Friday night.
I was over at a friends and was much the same as i have been for a while tight but nothing i cant deal with- i had a coughing fit and suddenly i just couldn't breathe in or out , i rapidly did a neb using my omron microair and got some relief so carried on enjoying the evening. It then happened all over again but not quite as bad so i thought i would shoot home. I(foolishly) drove home whilst struggling and then once getting through the door it was like like someone had sucked all the air out of me and i just couldn't breathe in or out - hubby brought my big neb downstairs as well as my sats monitor and the reading did un-nerve me somewhat - sats of 83% at pulse of 147 - thankfully after 3 nebs(allowed in my protocol) i had picked up enough to stay at home. I will be speaking to my community nurse tomorrow about it as well.
The whole experience has rather shaken me as have only had 1 previous attack like it which resulted in my first ventilation. I know my asthma is not controlled but there is nothing else that my con can do for me due to other problems and have got used to being very restricted in my daily life but this has really scared me.
Has anyone experienced an attack like that before and how did they cope?
