I have been having a lot of chest tightness with some wheezing and the feeling like nothing is moving but it comes and goes so I don't know what to do about it. My peak flows have dropped deep in to what I think would be my red zone and are staying there.I have no action plan to follow so it is hard to no what to do. My family doesn't think its bad enough to go in to the Dr. so I have been doing nebs every 4-6 hours with a little help. My peak flows after a neb goes up 10 to 20 points. I could really use some advice please. Sorry to complain but I just don't know what to do. Please help.
Hi, I just have a quick question about fevers if you normally run around 96.5 are you running a fever when you have a temp of 98.4 or do you go by what everyone else does and you don't have a fever until you get to 100 degrees.I'm just curios what others think.
I did but my regular dr.didn't get back to me. I will wait until Wed morning when she is back in the office. But if it gets to bad I will call the dr. she splits the week with, she is only there Weds. am and all day on Thurs. and Fri. but Dr. Bien who is there the other times is very good to. I've felt a little better today than the other day.
I get my meds at Wal-Mart and if you ask them they will print a label for you to put it on your inhaler. I have them do that whenever I pick up a new one because you never keep it in the box so I have them put one on the inhaler itself. It doesn't make sense to me to put it on the box. I hope you have fun and be careful.
Hi, Right now I'm having a very hard time with severe chest tightness and increased shortness of breath. However I haven't had any wheezing with this just a lot of chest tightness. It started maybe about 3-4 weeks ago and I also feel somewhat congested. I don't know what to do about it. I don't have an action plan to follow even though I have asked for one a couple times. I see my pulmologist at the end of Nov. but I don't know if I should wait until then, his office is 50 miles away so it a whole day trip to go down there and back, also at this time of the year in SD I don't like driving down there by myself and I have no one to go with me until then. On the good side my primary doctor is pretty good at taking care of my asthma. I was thinking maybe I should just make an appointment with her next Thursday or Friday. I just am unsure as to what is going on and what to do. Any advise would be welcomed.
What is your advice when your dr. won't give you a action plan even though you have asked repeatly for one. I don't know what to do when things start to get bad for example right now I have been having and very tight chest, shortness of breath, and decreassing peak flows. I also feel congested. When I took a shower yesterday I got very short of breath and when my mom saw me when I went to pick her up from work she asked me why I was breathing so hard and said my lips looked funny she thought they looked white. I see my pulmo at the end of next month. but I was thinking of going to see my primary doc who is pretty good at handling my asthma. My pulmo is 50 miles away. Please give me any advise you have.
Hi, I was wondering if anyone get severe tightness and pain in their back and shoulder blade area and slowly having increasing shortness of breath with slowly dropping peak flows? I think some of the problem is that we have had 33 inches more of rain than is normal for us up here in South Dakota. Today it has been raining all day and I have noticed an increase in chest tightness and pressure. If anyone can give me any ideas that would help would be appreciated.
