Exercise Induced Asthma?

I'm probably just being a hypochondriac....

When I finished the GNR I was wheezing and finding it really quite hard to breathe. Within a couple of minutes I was OK again. I had a similar experience at the end of my first 10k. My lungs feel tight and I can't seem to get them full of air. Does this sound like exercise induced asthma? Should I go to the doctor about it? I never have these symptoms at any time other than just after an exceptional (for me)physical effort.

suffering from EIA for all 26 years of my life, those symptoms sound familiar!

best to get yourself down the docs and ask for an asthma test on a tredmill. they get you to run at various speeds and see what your rection is.

i get it in the summer (hayfever triggers it) and on cold winters days.

a ventolin inhalyer helps a lot when you have an attack but as you can see its not too inhibiting and the fitter you get the lesser the symptoms

dont worry you wont die! :)

note
non EIA is much more dangerous and serious and people do die from such attacks!
