Scared to go home

I was brought to the ER by ambulance tonight and they couldn't find anything so they are sending me home. My heart rate keeps going to 154 and sometimes my oxygen drops down to 88 and 68. I was brought in tonight because I couldn't breath. I am nervous to go home. They say it was a asthma attack

Did they give you something to treat it, if it happens again?

So when you couldn't breathe at home, you tried your rescue inhaler and it didn't help? Did anything help you in the ER or did it get better by itself?

May I add that sometimes anxiety can cause that problem? I went to ER for not being able to breathe once and was found to be suffering from it. They ran a million tests....maybe it's a combination...or I could be completely wrong. If you use your meds and still have trouble breathing they need to dig a little deeper or add more asthma meds. I hope you feel better.

Do you have a nebulizer? My son has asthma as well as my mom and they both think that the nebulizer machine works better when they're having an attack than the inhaler.

I would demand further care for oxygen levels that low. That's a malpractice and negligence lawsuit to send you home with levels that low.
