Hi Lola,

Do you have a written asthma action plan?

I think you probably either need to go to A&E or see a GP within 24 hours.

If your peak flow is below 250 (your 50%), your struggling to walk or talk, your reliever isn't having an effect, or your needing your reliever more than every 4 hours, then you need to go to A&E. Otherwise make sure you see a GP within 24 hours, and get examined.

Hope you're better soon.
