Discussions that mention proventil

Asthma board

I've had anxiety attacks so I know what those are, they're awful.
This is not a panic attack. I was given the inhaled steroids and the proventil, orange/yellow inhaler. It says to take one to two puffs every 4-6 hours. It doesn't work and I'm always waiting until the fourth hour roles around. I have a call into the doctor to tell them the inhaler isn't working. It's awful. Is it possible to be diagnosed with asthma at 31? This is really awful. I've had episodes that I can't breathe and someone is sitting on my chest before but not like this. I can't sleep cause not being able to breathe makes me cough and so on.....I'm just waiting for the doc at this point. I have a pulmonary function test tomorrow. I just want answers and to be able to breathe!!
