If it gets so bad that you can't breathe, call 911 and they will send an ambulance. Sometimes just knowing that there is an answer makes us feel better and not so scared.

but what do i do when i can breathe a little but my chest (but u look inside ull see my lungs) hurts?

Why isn't your mom more concerned about you? She needs to understand that asthma is serious business. I think you need a visit with a doctor where you tell him/her what hurts, where it hurts, and how much it hurts. Maybe they could give you a stronger medicine, or add another med that will work together with the first one.

I think you should go and see your school nurse, Chalasa. It's a good idea for several reasons. Most importantly, she needs to know that you have asthma in case you should have a really bad attack at school. The school nurse is also someone you could talk to about what's going on with you right now, about how badly you are feeling and how much pain you are in, and the problems you are having with transportation. She might know of some solutions that could help you right away.

This coming weekend, when you go to the emergency room, tell the person at the desk where you check in that you're going to need an interpreter for your mom. That will give them time to get someone there so your mom can know what the doctor is saying in her own language. I think it's important that you tell the doctor, in your own words, what is going on with you, and what pain you are experiencing. He can help you better if he knows everything you are going through, and nobody knows that better than you.

I am serious about seeing your school nurse, Chalasa. I hope you will do that tomorrow (Friday). Good luck, sweetie. I hope you feel better soon.

If it gets worse, you must call 911. In the meantime, consult these links for possible adjunctives to your prescription inhaler www.asthma-home-remedies.org/ or health.howstuffworks.com › ... › Natural Medicine › Home Remedies

I too have asthma. You should go to urgent care. You also need to see a pulmonary doctor to get other medicines to help you. Do you have a nebulizers? My mom used to be the same way about the doctor until one time I took the bus to the ER myself and them they called her and hearing how important it was she changed quickly. Relax keep your shoulders spread out they will help your diaphragm move. If you can't walk from your room to another room call 911 and get an ambulance keep in mind stress will make it worse. I know it's hard when your having a hard time breathing but close your eyes and think of something peaceful and as the doctors say smell the roses thru your nose and blow out the candles thru your mouth. Part of the problem with asthma is your body forgets how to breathe during an attack. So that saying helps us take in air and get rid or CO2. Good luck!

Thanks! But was is nebulizers?
Report as
It is a machine that you put abuterol into it and it creates oxygen. It's a stronger form of medicine and helps open up your bronchial airways. It's also helps lessen the swelling of your airways. If you don't have one you need to get one. They will give you this treatment at the hospital too. They will mix it with other medicines too.

Where do i get it? pharamcy? drug store? or just doctor?
Report as
The doctor will prescribe it then you usually get it from a lung care place. The pharmacies do carry them, however only a doctor can prescribe the abuterol for you. So call your doctor they may call a script in but will want you to come in or go to the ER or urgent care which you should do anyways. Call a friend or a relative or ask a neighbor to drive you. Or call 911 and get an ambulance.

I agree with every one go to the doctor and get checked out but i had a friend who has a brother with asthma and i told him if he did not have a nebulizer he could boil water put his face in the steam and cover his head with a towel and he is doing better

Report as
No don't do that. That used to be the way and now the tell you to avoid any temperature change. As it can make it worse. He probably had induced asthma from sinus issues.

Please convince your mom to take you to the doctor if youre having a hard time breathing... Asthma is nothing to take lightly, especially when your medication doesnt help when your having an attack... Tell your mom how would she feel if she couldnt take in a deep breath let alone trying to breath normally...Call 911 on your own if you have to then maybe she will take you more seriously...

You need to see a doctor,your lungs are inflamed bad time a year for asthma ,use your puffer and drink something with caffeine in it plus water,to help you walk two steps breath in thru your nose 3 steps blow out thru your mouth slowly like blowing thru a straw.Look at color of your lips are they purple looking? That is a sign you need oxygen.Do you have a fever?Tell Mom you must go to doctor call a friend/ family/ taxi or call 911.have them take you either to your doctor or hospital they have ALL you need and give you meds more than just a puffer.This is NOTHING to play around with,your pass using just a puffer.
