Help?

Postby stinger53 » Thu Jan 17, 2013 18:44 pm

Hi,
I've got a bit of a problem when I'm am cycling while I'm at university at Ayr.
After about 10-15 miles of cycling my chest and lungs start to really hurt and continues to hurt for a while after.
But when I'm at home on the Shropshire/Welsh border I can do 50/60 miles fine and chest/lungs don't start to hurt at all.
Could it be the sea air?
I've been at uni at Ayr for 1 year and 4 months now but only been cycling up here for 4 months. and only got till 6th June till I finish my HND. but would like to do more than 15 miles.

Thanks

Have you been to see a doctor? Might be a good start if it feels out of the ordinary.

No I haven't. I was going to go when I was back down home for Christmas but went out on my bike a lot while I was there. And felt fine so I didn't go.

No that is why you should see a doctor.

Cold air? (I got the same running outside last week, inside the gym I'm fine).

I'm no doctor though.

What's your accommodation in Ayr like?

As a student in Dundee I spent 2 years in a flat which smelled must and of damp. During that spell I developed exercise induced asthma. It lasted a few months after I left the flat. Then I resumed playing squash and it gradually disappeared only to emerge when I came across cats or lots of house dust.

i live in a private rented flat with no problems (no damp etc). and don't have asthma or any allergies.
