I'm sorry, I seem to be posting a lot just recently!! It's just I have no-one else around me with asthma who I can chat to, and find discussing things with people who can relate, helps.
I woke up last night for a second time around 4am, I could feel tightness creeping from my back, over my shoulders and on to my chest. As the tightness increased I felt as though a boulder was sat on my chest and as it got bigger I could feel my airways closing up and was finding it harder and harder to get air in and out. The problem is while all this was happening I felt frozen to the spot and couldn't/didn't grab my inhaler until I realised I desperately needed it, it's as though it all happened so quick that I didn't have time to react. I've never had this happen before so it's concerned me a bit. When I did get my inhaler, I reacted quite quickly and I only needed 6 or so puffs to get back to breathing normally. I just wondered if anyone has experienced anything similar? How do you get over things that scare you like that? My breathing isn't too bad today now so I'm not to worried but I'm confused as to why I didn't seem to react at the time.
Sorry I think I'm just waffling now, and actually feel better for having written it down.
