Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Shahzad and I will be helping you out with your question
Did aleve of gas x help any?
Did aleve or gas x help any?
No, still have pain and alot of congestion
I do have asthma too. but there is chest pain on my right side
Can you please elaborate the congestion that you are having because you did not mention that in the initial question
I have some congestion , coughing etc . When I touch my right side it hurts . This is how is started. I was drinking a soda last night and it came on, alot of pain about my right breast and hard time breathing,. I took some aspirin and it went away a little not all the way , I was up and down all night with it and still this morning. Now I am coughing too.
well, I think that since you mentioned that you have asthma, the coughing, shortness of breath, congestion, chest pain all go in favor of the fact that you may be having an asthma exacerbation
I personally think that if you have an inhaler with salbutamol you should take it as soon as possible
what is that
That is ventolin
I have symbicort
That is a steroid inhaler
do you have any other inhalers with you?
Yes that is what I am talking about
take two puffs of that now
If your condition has not improved with that then you must go to the ER now
because I think that you are having worsening of your asthma
I am still having some chest pain on my right side does that go with asthma
Yes, one can have chest pain with asthma
I am sweating a lot too , I assume that goes with it too.
You are most welcome

No, just need to feel better
