I'm new here and I am really glad to have found a community of people who understand what dealing with asthma is like (even if most of you are in another country 😁 I'm Canadian) I'm an 18yr old girl and I was diagnosed with asthma when I was 12 so almost 7yrs ago. Anyway I hope everyone is feeling better than me right now. I've been feeling pretty ill all day today, I had a minor asthma attack last night and I was able to control it with my rescue inhalor. But today I have been struggling with terrible chest pain/tightness, coughing and shortness of breath when I talk. I've taken my rescue inhaler about 20times but it hasn't gotten any better. I'm nervous about going to the hospital because every other time I've gone my oxygen levels were perfect (98-100) and the nurses looked at me like I was faking. I really don't want to go unless I have to but at this point I'm just not sure how I am supposed to decide if I need to or not.
If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.
