I have exercise induced asthma. Its often not a problem for me. About three years ago I used to work out and exercise a lot, and kept it under relatively good control. More recently, however, I have not been working out at all. As an attempt to get back into it I went for two rather strenuous (for me) runs about three days ago.
Anyways, the past couple days since I have felt a little tight and congested in the chest. I don't know if this is related to the exercise or perhaps a cold brewing? I don't have any other cold symptoms, no runny nose, coughing, sneezing, or high temperature. I feel fine, actually, except for my chest.
My big question I suppose is is the chest tightness/congestion normal for someone with exercise induced asthma? Thanks.View Thread
both times i ran in the evening and it was a bit cold so perhaps that aggravated it. last night i could have sworn i was on the brink of a cold but i woke up today feeling mostly okay. chest is still a little tight but its better than yesterday.
