Hi - I'm having some difficulty in breathing. I can get air in but am finding it a bit hard to exhale. Don't know whether to use my bricanyl inhaler or not though. i've been going through a period of anxiety attacks for the past month and after being on ventolin for 20 years (only needing it a few times a week at night) I switched to Bricanyl in November but it caused leg cramps so went back on Ventolin. But then using it one night resulted in bad reaction - bad palpitations, etc. Doctor didn't think it was Ventolin causing it and that it had been a panic attack or that the panic attack made the symptoms worse. So now I am back on Bricanyl but have been told only to use it if absolutely necessary as if I'm really having a panic attack it could make heart rate too high.
I've had what I though is a coughing bug since the 23rd of Dec and last week it turned into the worst cold ever. I've had lots of congestion in the morning and it tends to vanish during the day but then at night everything becomes really tight and then in the morning I struggle again. Haven't taken anything as I don't know if I'm panicking as well and I'm afraid about my heart rate.
Right now I can breath in but breathing out is tight so I'm breathing a bit heavy and it feels like so much congestion is in my back. Heart rate is currently around 90 -110. Should I use the Bricanyl?
