Hi doctor, i’m a female, 24 years old, 157cm with 56kg. Whenever i jog, i would feel ‘tight’ in my chest. It’s like an attack as it would happen 10 minutes from the start of the jog and last for few seconds before it happened again ±15 minutes later. Before that, i had asthma when i was a child and my last asthma attack was when i was 14. Lately, i’m feeling shortness in breath but not severe. And i also feel tired easily. i’ve already went to the doctor and my blood pressure is normal and the doctor also could not detect any wheezing, odd sounds from my lungs, which per said that, i’m normal. However right now i feel ‘minty’ in my throat and upper chest. I do not have cough but i cough just to get more air to breathe, as i feel like i’m not breathing enough. I’m not sure if i supposed to see doctor again as everything was okay the last time i went for check up, which was a week ago. I need second opinion from here. Thank you doctor.
