User :   My 15 year old sister has been complaining of dizziness and headaches for a couple of days now. When she did, I'd feel her for a temperature and found nothing... I just assumed it was her seasonal allergies. This afternoon she had just finished blowing her nose while using the bathroom, she found some blood in her tissue. There also came some from her mouth. As she finished washing her hands, she felt very dizzy and passed out on the bathroom floor. I put her on the couch and around 5:30PM I checked her blood pressure... it was 78/50. I had her taken to the hospital and all they gave her was an IV. They did bloodwork and said that she has a virus coming but all she needs is rest. It's now 5:30AM and she can't sleep due to an inability to breathe. When she DOES close her eyes, she breathes very oddly and then she wakes up from it. What do I do?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   please rush to the nearest hospital
Doctor :   if she is not able to breathe or has difficulty in breathing
Doctor :   take her to nearest Er
Doctor :   emergency room
Doctor :   bye for now
