I was never told when to go back to the doctor or even that I needed an emergency kit. I soon found out I needed to be prepared in the event I had a serious attack. I started searching on healthunlocked and asked the question about the emergency kit. I got quick responses and have a kit prepared...which I have recently used. The kit prevented me from going to the emergency room during the night.
What symptoms and how severe do the symptoms have to be before returning to the doctor? The physician never told me! I went to my primary care doc who told me when to come to him and when to see the Pulmonologist. My primary care doc is my go to physician!
