After having a family member phone nhs line, they were urgent to send an ambulance but didn’t know how long it would take due to being crazy busy, so we decided to use our car to get there. Once getting there , I was clearly making a funny wheeze sound, everyone was staring, my chest was tight, back home my fingernails were turning blue, but as I waited 30 MINTES to even get help, it all calmed down due to the many many puffs I took I believe. So when I saw the nurse for first assessment, my oxygen stats were 100% , I could speak words but not fully, during my time in there waiting for her to find a peak flow I stopped wheezing and felt a lot better. I’m wondering why my oxygen levels were 100% is that normal? Especially coming off from an attack?
After seeing the doctor, he said I had a pretty bad attack with all my symptoms (at least he was understanding) and gave me a lot of advice to help me through future ones) he also ruled out any other infection that could be causing this, staging that it was a trigger (the fire was on a lot in the house I was in during a meal for hours) and my peak flow was 270 averaged which was lower than 450 but enough for me to be able to go home
Should I visit another gp temporarily here? Which I’m not sure if they’ll help, or try and survive through another week till uni
