I'm seventeen, and I've lived with asthma for about 10 years. I'm on Ventolin and Qvar 100.
Okay so since Monday to today (Thursday) I've been away on a residential. And last night I had a pretty bad asthma episode; the staff called an ambulance and they treated me with salbutomol and oxygen and discharged me at scene.
I have three questions that I'd quite like advice to:
1) After the neb was finished, the paramedic listened to my chest again and said he couldn't hear any wheeze at all whereas beforehand I was really bad. He didn't seem to think that was weird or anything but I was just wondering, is that normal?
2) Since yesterday, my heart beat has been going really quickly and thumping hard and then going back to normal for a while. When the medics were measuring my vitals my heart rate went up to 130 and I think it's done the same since. As well as this, I've been getting infrequent but awful chest pain, worse than I've ever had it before. As I said, the medic listened to my chest and didn't seem concerned, so should I not be worried?
3) The person in charge of the residential phoned my parents but they seem really unconcerned... I guess this is more of a moan than a question, it's just upset me a lot that they don't worry about the fact that I was quite poorly last night and not feeling great tonight either.
Any advice would be great and much appreciated
