Re: Asthma attack thats had me in ITU
Wow, honey, I am so sorry you went through that! They had no idea what could have caused such a bad attack? Could you have been exposed to chemicals? I'm pretty new to the asthma world myself, so I'm just now trying to find my own triggers.
Have you had allergy testing done? Maybe something you came into contact with something you are very allergic to. Have you seen your regular doctor? And if so, what did he/she say? Also, are you followed by a pulmonary specialist? If not, get an appointment with one right away. It's been two months since my first attack and I just had my first visit with a pulmonary specialist. I am now finally feeling like someone is going to get to the bottom of my asthma. My GP seems to just want to patch the current problems and not find out why.
I hope you are feeling better soon. I also hope you don't have another attack especially like that one. You should probably watch what you eat and come in contact with carefully. Start a journal or something. If you should have more symptoms, you may be able to piece together a catalyst from it.
