Hi again. Sorry for my ignorance, but what is an asthma attack? People say it's when you can't breathe properly, which I understand, but they often talk of your chest being tight. Is it like when you have a chest infection, and all the mucus is stopping you breathing properly, so you sound like a coffee machine? Because that's what I have when I get chest infections, and I sound horrible. My chest felt heavy last time, and I could feel that my nemk was funny, like it sounded funny, straining itself to work properly. If you know what I mean. My salamol didn't help either, when I used it, I was still wheazing and sounding like a coffee machine.
