I'm new here and I'm not really sure how things work but I've been struggling with my asthma over the last couple of weeks quite a lot, having chest pain and tightness, difficulty breathing - my breathing has been quite shallow, especially at night - I've been coughing a lot and using my reliever 3-5 times a day.
I was diagnosed with asthma a few years ago and I've never really been told what is normal and when I need to get help, as in go back to the doctor, or what an asthma attack would look like, and when I would need to call for an ambulance.
Over the last week or so my peak flow has been around 400 in the mornings and around 450 and occasionally 500 at night, my best score is 520. I'm not sure if it being 400 in the morning is too low or not and if the symptoms are to be considered normal?
Just looking for some advice really on what to do now, how to deal with having asthma and what to expect in an attack or when to call the ambulance for help?
Any advice would be really appreciated,
