So my question is if your peak flow is 90-100% then does that mean that you are not having an asthma attack? Is a peak flow meter a good guide even if your chest is a little heavy?

Sweetz, If you and your doctor have established your what I call your "red, green and yellow light" peak flows, that's usually a pretty good indicator for me.  But then on the other hand, when I am at my very worst, I don't wheeze.  I don't have enough air left to wheeze, I can barely whisper.  Are you treated by an allergist?  Are you a fairly new asthma patient?  If it is all new to you, it takes a while to learn to know when you are really in trouble.

What usually happens when you have an asthma attack?
