When I start a run or sometimes just walk up stairs I get a burning sensation in my throat (near notch) and my airway is restricted & I get lightheaded & wheeze. Worse when it's warm and humid. After 20 minutes or so of walk/run it somewhat settles down. I can breath better when cool out. Started 2 1/2 years ago and thought related to my positive Lyme disease test. But not typical & no change with anti-biotics. Have had bronchial tests recently that show no asthma. Sports induced asthma diagnosed a couple years ago, but inhaler didn't help. Local Dr. doesn't seem to have any ideas.
Thanks for your response. However, I've started making my laundry detergent and don't use a clothes dryer. I had the problem before that as well, so don't think that is my issue.
I had my Dr prescribe another inhaler that I will try. Just seems odd that I would suddenly develop this condition at 45 yrs old, and it coincided with the onset of Lyme disease. I've run many marathons and triathlons before this with no breathing problem.View Thread
