Trouble Breathing While Exercising
I've had a cold for a week or so (runny nose, cough, sinus headaches behind nose/eyes) but whats been bothering me is after running for a period of time (typically outside) my throat swells up to the point I can barely breathe and have to stop, then if I stop and slow my breathing my throat begins to return to normal. Is this common? And is there a way to prevent it? Or an over-the-counter medicine I could take to help prevent it? Currently I'm just taking Mucinex DM. I'm on a rugby team and it happened at the last two practices so I'm trying to help prevent the third.

Have you ever been assessed for Exercise-Induced Asthma (EIA)?  I would follow up with a Pulmonologist and/or an Allergist if you have been having this problem long before this cold.  If you have had this only with the cold, then I would consult your GP/Family Physician.    

Mucinex DM is great for chest congestion/cough.  For your symptoms, I don't know about Mucinex.
