been on an 11hr shift(domicilary care) today and had an asthma attack halfway through. I was working with a colleague and we left a clients house then it started in the car while I was driving.
My throat tickled for a few seconds then my throat felt as if it swelled up, then coughing and even wheezing(I'm usually a non-wheezer).
I took my reliefer but didn't help much and I felt so embarrassed in front of my colleague!
I had to get 1.5hrs of work covered, couldn't go home as 10 miles away, so stayed at my friends house to get sorted. Didn't wanna go to a&e but used my friends mum's nebs as I knew I needed it.
Felt better after and daft me went back to work for 4hrs after.
Still shaking and feel as if there's trapped air everywhere around my ribs as aching, so is my chest.
Have had a chest infection for 5 weeks now, been on steroid and antibiotics, pf still only 60% but started feeling better last couple of days and then this!!
The client I went to for 30mins has a dog. I noticed my eyes burning in there. Could the dog be a trigger even if I was only in there for 30mins? Last allergies test from 2004 said I wasn't allergic to cats or dogs but could it have changed? Or am I over sensitive after the chest infection?
I hate it all and just wanna get on with life
