I know this board is for serious, real life medical help but I need to know this as it is important for accurate portrayal of asthma.
A few friends and I are writing a story and one of the main characters has severe asthma. At one point, she is hospitilised. During her stay, she hallucinates something which is important to the plot. Is this realistic? I have researched hallucinations and have found a symptom to be severe body stress. Does this mean a severe asthma attack could cause hallucinations? The character did pass out and hit her head at one point if that helps.
Thanks. We're not being published or anything but the story is going on forums where many people, mostly teens will read it and it is important to the girls and I to accurately portray any medical condition.
Also, how long would a hospital stay be after a severe attack? Is overnight enough?
Thanks again. :)
