You could ring 111 for lesser emergencies. You will have to answer some questions so make yourself comfortable.

111 sent an ambulance out an all my test were clear. She think that I ha r chronic panic disorder an maybe nocturnal asthma. This is wat could b causing all my pain an breathing problems. But she wants me to call them out again 2nite wen the weezey comes on which it does every nite. An then she said we will go from there cause my chest is clear rite now an no cardiac problems at all. I'm very shocked but also a but relieved it may not b as serious as I thought although she did say I have to B carefull as panic disorder to this degree can cause cardiac problems so I'm going to my psychiatric nurse Monday morning an go from there. Thank you everyone am I will keep u informed as to the outcome. I do feel a but mire at ease. Xx
