I am 53 yrs old and was diagnosed with asthma about 9 years ago. I've always had seasonal allergies since I was a kid.
I am on Advair 500 / 50, Combivent (rescue), Duoneb (nebulizer), Spiriva, and Theophylline for my asthma. I am on Accolate and Zyrtec for my allergies.
I have recently being experiencing intense chest pain especially after walking for 30 minutes or so such as going to the store. I will use the nebulizer (Duoneb) and the pain subsides but is still a bit achey. The other day I had three episodes of pain, within 4 hours, across the full length of my chest like someone had hit me with a switch. The first time was more intense than the last time.
At what point should I see medical attention (including going to the emergency room)? If I went everything I had a chest pain I'd go two or three times a week.

Have you gone to your doctor about the chest pain? I would at least call your primary physician or make an appointment and mention it.

I agree with Beachmom.  You definitely need to see your doctor to make sure there is not something else going on.  Please do that and let us know what you find out.  By the way, welcome to HealingWell!
Take care!
