you need to see a doctor and get your lungs checked for asthma
with a pulmonary function test.
you might benefit from an inhaler for astham
to help open up your airways
and stop the wheezing and help your breathing.
you can go to the A&E now
or you can wait to see a doctor tomorrow.
then you should go to the A&E right now
they can give you a steroid treatment
and a ventolin inhailer and you will feel better right away.
A&E emergency departments are open 24 hours a day.
and are meant to be used in these situations.
you should wake your family
you should let them know you are short of breath
and this is a real medical emergency situation
and take a cab to the A&E department
and tell the doctors there you are wheezing and short of breath
and are having an asthma attack.

not without medications to help open up your airways.
you can use benadryl
do you have any benadryl at home
or steroids or allergy medications?
ok try that.
