Hi, I've had a horrendous chest infection for the past 7 weeks which appears to be going now. The hospital have diagnosed me with asthma and I'm a bit clueless!
They've started me on the brown and ventolin inhalers and a spacer. I've been using the preventer for 5 days. At 4am this morning I woke up short of breath seemingly without space to breath in, pressure on my lower ribs, aching in my lower ribs or stomach and panicky. Is that an asthma "attack"? I used the reliever as instructed and about an hour later I can breath relatively normally and I'm calm but feel so sleepy. Is that normal and do I need to do anything else?
Sorry for the first long lost!
