Hi all, had a first for me yesterday having suffered with asthma for nearly the 30 years. Ended up calling 111 who promptly sent an ambulance out yesterday resulting in a lot of hours at the local A&E. I was told I’d had what is essentially a silent asthma attack which I had never heard of before. No wheezing no chest pain no coughing. All I had was symptoms of feeling out of breath on gentle exertion which gradually got to where the was no relief at all. I also suffer fibromyalgia so exhaustion and having to push through are a fairly normal occurrence so I just pushed on at work all afternoon, and having got home and sitting down for two hours and still not being able to catch my breath properly decided I needed advice.
I actually find this silent asthma attack idea a scary one as I really didn’t feel it was asthma in any way.
Just wondered what other people’s experience were, if anyone has suffered anything similar and how you cope with the fact it may happen again without knowing it’s creeping up.
