Hi everyone, I’m new here - will give a brief history....
I was diagnosed with asthma when I was about 18, was quite severe and ended up in hospital quite a few times before getting it under control. Gradually took less and less medication as it hasn’t been bothering me at all (except occasionally when I get a cold and I just use my ventolin as and when I feel I need it)
Anyway, tonight my chest feels tight and I’m finding it hard to catch my breath (I have a cold) and have dug out a ventolin inhaler only to find it’s a year out of date. Presumably it’s safe to take this as an emergency until I can get to a docs tomorrow? Would really appreciate any advice if anyone has any?
