After mountain biking in the countryside I get a sore throat, I can taste metallic or blood in the mouth, but there is no blood there.
I don't get this walking, even walking up a mountain, just cycling.
When on the bike my nose starts running especially now during winter, when sat at home, it feels like mucus going to my lungs making me have chesty cough.
I told the doctor about it two years ago, I told them I feel faint after going up hill.
They looked baffled, I had a blood test and that was normal.
I don't smoke or anything like that, one doctor thought it might be because of my acid reflux.
I haven't felt any acid or indigestion when cycling...
I tried going for a ride on the bike today, I develop a sore throat especially after pushing up hill and then after going home, that's when I start tasting blood, but no blood.
Is this normal?
What can I do to cycle without these sensations?
