Go to the ER

This is exactly how asthmatics can get in severe trouble.

They can wear out completely and then not be able to breath and go on a ventilator.

You need so ER/observational treatment immediately, maybe even admission if you have any pneumonia.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.

Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
