last night, i took my reliever 6 times in 1 hour, did not feel any better so went to hospital.
My lips looked blue, my face was pale and sweaty, unable to take normal breaths, shaking because of the amount of ventolin i had taken, constant horrible cough that i could not catch my breath back.
when i saw the doctor, it was 45 mins after i had arrived, i had managed to control my breathing to try to stop coughing.
The doctor pretty much said i was wasting his time.and sent me on my way.
This morning, when i got to work i could not breathe. I had walked up the stairs and could not get any air in.
i could not even get enough air to take my inhaler
My co-workers were worried and said i looked horehounds while trying to call an ambulance but I would not let them as i didnt want to waste their time again.
eventually it calmed down enough to take my ventolin.
my chest is still tight and wheezy but if i breathe through my nose i dont choke or wheeze as much.
Surely if there was a problem, they would have helped me last night?
When should I go to a&e?
when should i call an ambulance?
how do i know if it is bad enough?
if i go to a&e and start to feel better while i am waiting, what should I do?
