I took an asthma attack just over 2 weeks ago and it was the scariest experience of my life. For the past few days I have been starting to feel the symptoms coming on again - the tightness in the chest, hot sweats, pains in back, feeling short of breath. I know from my previous experience that the best thing to do is to drink caffeine (tea, coffee) take my inhalers, monitor the peak flow and to rest. It's all fine and good doing these things but it's still terrifying to think it might be coming back.
I was out at a local shopping centre with my mum today and all of a sudden the tight band came back around my chest and the pains through my back, it was an all too familiar feeling. The only thing that has changed is the weather, it's been very clammy in Belfast over the past couple of days. Has anybody else experienced asthma attack symptoms coming back from a change in the weather? It sounds ridiculous even asking that
Thanks in advance for any replies !
