I need to try and explain this problem without making it sound worse than it really is!
When I run during the cold months of the year, I find that I get really bad chest pain which I know for a fact is not my heart, but I actually think it could be related to my breathing. It causes considerable discomfort (but I never feel as though I am going to pass out or anything) and has on occasions radiated to my upper back. I do get very mild asthma so that could also be a potential cause.....The pain caused is fairly intense and feels like I am putting a 'heavy load' on my lungs.
I am really keen to get to the bottom of this because it is decreasing my enjoyment of running immensely and makes a difficult time of year to train even harder.
As I mentioned, it is ony during cold weather, in warmer weather I have no such condition.
I will be going to see a doctor, but I would be really interested to find out if anyone has had similar problems??
Thanks in advance,
