Asthma attacks all night long

Oct 18, 2016 9:19 AM

I coughed all night long wheezing and chest pain, got no sleep 😴 I'm exhausted. Night before last I ended up at the ER with a UTI and a bad fibro flare. The doctor listened to my lungs and gave me a breathing treatment. She also gave me two pain shots, which completely shocked 😳 me, and pain pills to take at home 🏡. And antiabotics for my UTI.
But all day and night yesterday I have had a hard time breathing, wheezing and coughing relentlessly. I used my inhalers to no avail. I'm so tired 😴 I can bearly keep my eyes 👀 open. It's very scary not being able to breathe.
Do anyone else have problems breathing? What helps for you? What triggers your symptoms?

I also struggle with asthma - especially this time of the year. My doctor ordered an updraft machine for me to keep at home so I can do my own treatments. As a child my doctor had my parents take me to the bathroom. Turn the shower on as hot as it gets so the room steamed up .. And I sat there in the steam. That helped.
