Get tx now.: If you have chest pain and difficulty breathing & your nebulizer doesn't work - you need to be evaluated at an emergency room. If symptoms are worse than normal- have you had any COVID 19 contacts.

Asthma: Your asthma is not controlled and prolonged asthmatic symptoms are serious as dangerous impairment of ventilation leads to eventual fatigue and buildup of carbon dioxide. I recommend going to the hospital emergency room &obtain prompt care and getting your asthma under control. Your home medicines, new meds & nebulizers will be reviewed for proper dosing and techniques before you're sent home
