Unhappy Emergency Help

It kills to breathe today I couldnt talk cause it hurt so bad and i was to short of breath all i did was walk up the steps. Here are my other symptoms nails turning blueish shaky, lips and fingers feeling weird and feeling blood flow, dizziness, achey, sleeping everything especially feet, throat felt tight, and rib pains. My doctor said that i had a sinus infection, then bronchitis, then pnemonia in two months i have been there 13 times in the past 3 months aswell. Well anyways it kills to breathe right now and im in so much pain. My peak flow is down to 250 its normally 400-350-or 450 once i was up to 700. Any ideas, any advice for the pain i have an apointment on monday for a lung specialist. i have asthma and it hasnt been active for 10 yrs. plz help.

thx

Re: Emergency Help

are you on albuterol or anything for a rescue med? I'd say take some more and stay calm.

Re: Emergency Help

Last time I had these types of symptoms I was at school and my professor called 911. I was upset at first, then happy he called. I really needed it. My pulse ox was in the 70s by the time they got there. You really need to wake your parents up and go to the ER. Even if it is nothing, better safe then not.

Re: Emergency Help

Regionals 18,

If you are having breathing problems, always- always- always notify your parents first.
Dont' worry about waking them up for this reason. The consequences of a bad asthma attack are not good- and your parents are there to help take care of you.
My child was in and out of the ER as a young child- and let me tell you, I wanted to know at the first sign if he was having any problems. It is better to get it taken care of when the symptoms are just minor instead of waiting until a major attack.
Please take care of yourself and let your parents do the same.

Re: Emergency Help

Hi,
I really hope you come back to read this. When I was at school I had the worst asthma of anyone I know. It really affected my whole life and participation in sports. Recently my Dad was given a newish inhaler called Seretide. He swore by it and went on at me to try it. At first I refused saying I had my own personalised medication from my Specialist but he went on and on and eventually I took one squirt. Well from 40+ ventolin squirts a day I now would barely take one. Before, I couldn't walk to the end of my driveway, now I can walk round the block! I JUST WISH I HAD BEEN GIVEN THIS SOONER. I feel like I've got my life back.
P.S. Apparently docs are reluctant to give this out on prescription as it is quite expensive - persist!!

Re: Emergency Help

After looking up Seretide (since I have never heard of it before), I think Seretide is the UK name, and the US equivalent is Advair.
