Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas and all that!
Just a gentle reminder regarding the T&Cs relating to urgent medical advice. We do ask that these kinds of posts are not made on the boards, as they can cause distress and worry to other users - and this really isn't a good place for getting help in an emergency. < start quote from T&Cs >
""Asthma UK's forums are for debate and discussion. Especially, they are not a suitable place to obtain medical advice in an emergency. If you feel unwell or need advice in an emergency situation, help should be obtained from one of the following sources:
* Your local GP service - either your surgery, or, if closed, the local out-of-hours centre; some regions also have NHS Walk-In Centres
* NHS Direct - a nurse-led advice line which can provide medical advice, or call an ambulance if needed - telephone 0845 46 47
* Dialling 999 for an emergency ambulance, or by going to your local Accident & Emergency department.
* Asthma UK's own guidance for what to do in an asthma attack""

So please, take a moment to consider whether your post might be construed as asking for urgent advice, and, if it does, please follow the steps above rather than posting here.
Many thanks, and Happy New Year!
