Toradol and other NSAID's should not be taken with your asthma...NSAID's are very common and all forms of ibuprofen are included in this class

If you have an allergist, you can talk to them about desensitizing (immunotherapy) to NSAIDs.  I also have attacks with NSAIDs.  However, with the new warnings about Tylenol, my allergist is more concerned about that and is planning on treating the NSAID allergywith immunotherapy.  Personally I am not that concerned about Tylenol.  I have taken it for years without any problems, but this is one of those things that can sneek up on you if you aren't careful.  I don't want to be unable to take all pain relievers.

Take care and I am glad that you recovered.

I had a terrible experience with Toradol as well.  I didn't end up in the hospital, but I did feel close to death for about 1-2 days after taking it.  Funny thing about it is I do not have any allergy to aspirin/NSAIDS.  I do have a history of Asthma though.  

I would recommend getting a MED-ALERT bracelet or necklace so others are aware of your allergies and medications you cannot take in case you are not able to speak for yourself.  

I think your physician could have been more prudent.
