This is my first post on this site & I'm looking for some urgent advice:
I used to be a smoker with an occasional flare up of asthma, so I gave up completely 2 weeks ago because it flared up again....my GP gave me a blue Salamol Inhaler & my breathing hasn't improved...if anything its become worse.
I made an appointment yesterday to see the emergency GP, I told her the inhaler wasn't working & she told me to use it every 2 hours taking 2 puffs....been doing that & I still haven't improved!
I keep feeling dizzy/lightheaded, have a pain in the middle of my chest that comes & goes, my chest feels like someones got their boot pressing on it & I have shoulder & a really dull ache under both my right & left arm & I can not take a full deep breath...its a struggle.
Could the above be because of taking the inhaler so much....like a side effect?
Please any help would be very much appreciated....thankyou
