Like whoah



It's 5am and I'm awake. Woke up coughing and wheezing. Some sort of mild asthma attack. Trying to stay VERY calm and hold up until 8am when I can call the doctor. I have some po-ho oil to keep me company since I do NOT want to dish out 100 bucks to call the regional nightpost. Yeah, I looked up the info just in case. The moment you do as much as call them, you'll be charged 25 bucks already and prices go up to 90 if you come for a visit or 130 if a doctor must come and visit you.

I have NO idea what caused this sudden attack, This is the second time in my life I've experienced it. The other time was on holiday with my parents, that was an even scarier moment. Luckily my mom's inhalators brought instant relief. No, I do not have one of my own. I have chronic bronchitis that only manifests twice a year or so when my resistance is low. I cough up blobs of green mucus for a couple of days, drink a bottle of Bisolvon Extra Forte and I'm OK.

But .... cause? No idea. I have an electrical citronella burner in a power socket to keep the vampires away (and the mosquitos too), but that shouldn't trigger asthma, right? I don't feel weak or sick and I didn't work out hard enough on the DDR floor to get any trouble breathing. Will post an update later today. Doc will probably just stick a stethoscope to my chest, listen, write me up for an inhalator and send me off. Still.... weird.

From a fellow asthmatic...
It can be almost anything. A plant outside, or inside the house. You should get some antihistamines to lower the reaction. The ones I use, are called Loratadine and cost very little. I think 8 euro for a box of 30 pills. They're daily take and do not make you sleepy, so it's safe to drive with them in effect.

Other than that, your neighbourhood pharmacy might have some basic anti-allergy meds you can use, just like Loratadine.

G'luck and hope you'll feel better soon.

Perhaps you're allergic to something? Haven't got a clue, but I'm asthmatic too. Inspanningsastma.

And allergic to cats, dogs, trees, grass and dustmite. Even though with a list that big, I'm lucky to have no real problems with it all. As long as I wash my hands after petting a dog or cat, it's fine, save from an ocasional sneeze. And I sneeze some more when the farmers (my dad's one too) is getting cut and dried. I love the smell, but staying around it for too long gets me sneezing white tissues red.
