Re: August 2013 Chat ~ March 24-30
I think I just figured out some of my breathing problems. Apparently, my asthma has come back full force. I've been coughing most nights for 3-4 weeks, having trouble breathing if I go up and down stairs, walk too much, etc. So I was laying in bed today and I started wheezing and hacking and coughing and couldn't breathe and it dawned on me that this was exactly like an asthma attack.... and then I remembered that I have asthma. I haven't had an attack in probably 5+ years. I found my old inhaler a few days ago and it is almost full and dated out in 2008.
So I took two puffs off of my inhaler and I was better within 5 minutes. The problem is that I had another attack less than two hours later and my chest feels raw and I am not sure how often I can take my albuterol and be safe =/ The RX says every 6 hours.
I am thinking about calling the advice nurse.
