Had a really bad night last night. Seems like every time I would fall asleep a few minutes later I'd be up feeling panicked like I could not catch my breath. Came very close to waking my husband to take me to er. About 2 am I finally gave up and went on the sofa. Slept a little after that sitting up but got up sore as hell. Called my pulmonologist and he said if it keeps up go to the ER but I'm hesitant because of my ER copay, I can't afford to run to the ER constantly. I'm on 2 puffs advair daily and my rescue is proair hfa, which really doesn't do much. Advair seems to be helping. I'm not coughing up anything but my chest feels really tight and I can not take a deep breath. Also really tired.
