im 26 year old woman. I always get lingering coughs when I've had a cold or flu. Ive noticed i do often feel a bit faint or out of breath, and feel like my heart is beating too fast (my heart is ok though, ive had heart echo recently). I cycle to university and sometimes I will just feel quite short of breath while riding (which is odd as I expect I should be getting fitter). Just riding home tonight i felt a bit short of breath although actually not too badly, weird in my chest, and felt quite faint - not normal for some light cycling!
I am prone to eczema but dont have any major allergies I know of, although my brother had severe food allergies and cat allergy.
do you think it is worth getting this looked at, could it be asthma? should I try a Ventolin and see? I remember an endocrinologist gave me a Ventolin about 10 years ago due to a lingering cough
