I've had asthma since I was a child and have been keeping above water with it, which is a chore without insurance. I have a nebulizer that I take and an inhaler on the way. Tonight I cooked bacon and the room I was in was very hot. I started wheezing and started to take a treatment but it didn't feel like it was working, getting into my lungs. I started coughing and couldn't breathe. I went out on the porch to try to breathe fresh air but it felt like something was caught in my throat, my face flushed and I couldn't inhale. I felt dizzy and sat, my friend gave me a water and the first sips were hard to get down because my throat felt it was closed. I'm still wheezing on exhale, coughing and have a little chest tightness and my throat still doesn't feel normal. My peak flow was high, in the 400's. What caused this?
