First, im 18 years old, 5'7 and about 140 Lb. I play video games competitively for the last couple of years so my body has suffered pretty hard.. A couple of days ago I went on a biking trip that was about 35 miles. The next day my stomach felt really sore, which I figured was normal. The today I woke up and felt like I needed air, like I couldn't breathe too well.. Could this just be from my extreme exercise, or something else? Maybe even mental? I have been really anxious about moving into my university for the past week..thanks for any response.

Dear W1NE,

35 MILES! That's a haul. How sedentary a lifestyle would you say you live? How's your breathing now, a couple of weeks later? have you moved into university?

Thanks for the reply m8, the breathing has been much much better.. I think I just overworked my entire body. I do have tight chest at night, but it usually goes away after a bit. I am usually pretty lazy but I don't eat much because I forget.. I hate the docs so I try to avoid them as much as possible.

I hear you. Sometime docs aren't all that helpful, and they just seem to think that they know everything ... ATTITUDE. Enough vent.

Breathing is a lifelong task ... and you can learn to control it. It takes a lot of work b/c first you need to become conscious of the breath.

What do you study?

I thought that I was just plain paranoid about my breathing..maybe I was and maybe I wasn't but I'm fine now. I'm studying computer engineering, its becoming a hassle now. What do you do?
