Hey,
I've been having a asthma flare up for the past 5 days, (my emergency puffer works but the attack always comes back every few hours) ive been taking my other puffer to get it under control so its a waiting game now. Im really concerned because im flying tomorrow. The air in airplanes triggers my asthma attacks even when it is undercontrol, so i am extremely nervous about flying when i am having a flare up. My dr. gave me ativan to take before the flight to keep me calm but Im still terrified that I might have a serious attack and require medical attention from 30,000 feet. Anyone have advice for me
