Hi, it’s my third time posting on here and I’m a bit stuck with what to do.
I first want to say I don’t wheeze literally ever!! I think a doctor has only heard my chest ‘right’ once. My oxygen is normally okay during attacks but my hr easily hits 150bpm and my resps fluctuate between 40-70 (not good!!!)
I have a cold, and its only day two and it’s gone straight to my chest. I’m not in a crisis yet, but breathing is hard, having a blocked nose and a rough cough isn’t helping that either. My peak flow is normally around the 400/420 mark and its currently 230. I’m taking salbutamol every two hours ish but will see how tonight goes.
I don’t want to go to a&e as because my oxygen is normally good and my chest doesn’t sound bad they normally just dismiss me or give me one neb then stop. However I’m getting tired from struggling to breathe and can’t take deep breaths so my resps are quite high.
I’m on relvar once a day, ipatropium 4 times a day, and Theophylline tablets. My asthma is out of control and I’ve switched between sic different meds this year trying to fix it.
Any advice would be much appreciated - how long to weight for a&e, or even is it an issue or will it hopefully work itself out?
