Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Well if you cant breathe at all then YES IMMEDIATELY call 911 to get breathing treatments. If you cant even walk to the door that means that bronchitis is severe and you need to get treated as soon as possible. Yes call 911 and get an ambulance as soon as you can before your fingers and lips start turning blue.
