I would just like to know if this pain is serious

Which pain is bothering you most?

From symptoms, it seems you have acute asthma attack and for that you might need nebulizer

as inhalers are not working

I hzve had nebulisers in hospital for 5 days and my oxygen was 98%

I am sorry to know that. I can understand your situation. I would strongly recommend you to go A&E as you need acute therapy.

They discharged me 2 days ago

I understand. I am sorry but at home, it would not get better. Do you have nebulizer at home?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
They said my sats and everything are fine . I get breathless but not wheezing like asthma

you don't need to be admitted there, just need acute therapy probably nebulizer

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
The doctors in the hospital told me it is safer for me to be at home because of covid 19

I understand but you need acute therapy

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
When i am resting i am fine it is only on movement that i get breathless and cough
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Also the doctors stopped my nebulisers 24 hours before they discharged me because they said i didnt need them

well, you can give some more time to see recovery. However, if not resolved then please consult A&E.
