2 Months ago I ran my first half marathon Then a few weeks later i got ill with a bit of flu, then a cough and then got better. That was about 8 weeks ago now but ever since then I can't Breathe properly. I can run 3-4 miles max on a good day at a minute slow per mile. This has been going on for 5-6 weeks now with no improvement. I have gone to the doctors and tried Asthma stuff, antibiotics, nose drips and chest x-rays. They are generally not very helpful. I get a very dry throat when running and seem to have a problem breathing in rather than out. I started to try and diagnose myself as the doctors where not that good. I believed it may of been acid reflux so started taking PPI medication. Now i am starting to feel bloated and worse and not getting any better breathing wise. Any suggestions?
At the moment I have currently given up diary products, chocolate, caffeine, spicy food, fizzy drinks and alcohol. Generally most advice is to eat healthy and exercise. Needless to say I don't think i'm that bad if i ran my first half 2 months ago. I don't think symptoms where cause by stress, depression as that has only started to happen now as running was a huge part of my life.
