Lungs

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Thu Oct 18, 2007 3:19 pm

Ok, just checking to see if anyone else gets this. Sometimes, if I push myself really hard, my lungs hurt. Like an achy feeling in my chest especially on inhalation. Does anyone else get this (who aren't asthmatic) or is it just my asthma???

I don't get sore lungs but I do get a tight, wheezy kind of sensation in my lungs when I push myself hard at the end of a long run and I have to gasp for air. I imagine it's a bit like being asthmatic? It's not a pleasant sensation, that's for sure :? I just slow down a bit, try not to panic and focus on sucking back as much air as I can.

I'd chat to your GP next time you visit, Tegan.

A mouse ran in your ear when you were asleep and is trying to get out?? LOL. Maybe it's a ear thing...high pitched sound?

The bloke reckons he gets the sore lung thing too and he isn't asthmatic. He reckons it's jst what happens when you go too hard.

re: the lung thing. i think it is just from pushing really hard, and asthmatics would be more prone to it as their lung capacity generally is not quite as good as non-asthmatics...

recommendations? when you get pain, start walking slowly, take deep slow breaths and concentrate on your breathing.. if you're asthmatic, ALWAYS take your ventolin with you running/any kind of exercise, and when you get tight in the chest take some!

if the pain persists, or you cant catch your breath at all - its time to get to hospital! dont wanna scare anyone, but really, the chest pain/tightness should go away in a few minutes with good breathing and slow walking, and if it doesnt, you should get checked out :)

Yeah, I find if I take deep breaths and hold it, it aches, but settles down quicker. I always have my bricanyl on me. Not being able to breathe is enough to scare anyone into permanent medication carrying. I haven't used it in AGES, but I never can quite leave it behind
