I was helping out at work this morning setting up for our Christmas market and someone jumped over a fire extinguisher and it went off and I wasnt standing too far away and almost instantly I felt my chest tighten and a wheeze start.
I started straight away with blue inhaler and the wheeze got so loud heads where turning. To cut a long story short ... took me an hour to get it semi under control and had a cough non stop for the whole day yet wheezing calmed if I sat still yet the minute I stood up and walked even 5 steps it was back. Called GP who said go to A&E ... got to A&E and within 15 minutes I was triaged in resus on a nebuliser and had a dose of steroids.... 3 nebs later and wheeze controlled if I dont walk yet still coughing and chest sore so they gave me some time and PF not really nudging. So now I'm no back to back nebs (now on number 6) ... waiting for chest xray and ecg to be done yet I've been told I'm being kept overnight.
Nebs make me feel terrible yet I guess that's normal yet just feeling a bit overwhelmed as triage nurse said it should be quick in and out yet I've been here for 5 and half hours already.
