I'm desperate for help; I'm needing triple the usual dosage of blue inhaler as it stands, and after over a month, my brown and green inhalers have yet to help me at all. I cannot see a doctor about this for at least a week due to queues, and A&E disregarded me despite moments where my pulse oximetry showed levels as low as 85%. Some doctors have said I may have vocal chord dysfunction because of sound gasp sounds we caught in a sound recording of me at night. However we cannot deny the rescue inhaler helps me. It just doesn't help for long! I have no cough, wheeze or chest pain. Just some tightness - nothing painful - and serious shortness of breath, as well as throat mucus.
This source says some VCD patients get unexpected relief from bronchodilators like the one I use, Ventolin. How true is this? Please help, I'm very confused as things stand.
