my husband is 46 and over the past four nights has woken up with terrible coughing,tight chest and problems trying to breath.this usually happens between 2am and 4 am. He can not talk in full sentences and will not let me ring for an ambulance. He usually takes himself downstairs for an hour or two and then comes back to bed a lot better.. I have offered to call the ambulance - take him to the doctors etc etc but he is a stubborn as a mule and says he is ok.
I am assuming that he may be a possible asthmatic !!!!
Any advice would be appreciated.
