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 I mostly didn't have problems. Since then, however, I have barely done anything fitness-related the past three years. As an attempt to get back into it I went for two rather strenuous (for me) runs about three days ago. The second run in particular left me rather wheezy, however drinking some tea calmed things down.

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. I'm not wheezing or anything, and can breathe fine, its mostly just discomfort.

My big question I suppose is is the chest tightness/congestion normal for someone with exercise induced asthma? I just want to make sure I don't have a cold and wont potentially be infecting people I'm around. Thanks.

Hmm well flu season is upon us! But if you haven't been exercising for years and you have exercise induced asthma, that could be the issue. I'd suggest asking a professional, because it probably depends. Try [image removed]/VmZkTj
