Tightness in back of throat, feeling of breathing cold air. Had stomach flu. Related to flu?

Hi, i had the stomich flu a few days ago but am completely better from it. However, yesterday and today I have noticed that when i breath my lungs and back of my throat feel tight and like im breathing in freezing cold air. I notice it most when im falling asleep or sitting still but also at some other times. Im not sure if this is related to my flu or completely something else. I am a 18 year old female who doesnt smoke and regularly exercise with no previous medical conditions.

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding feeling tightness i back of throat during breathing in old air.

Since you had recovered from stomach flu so this is some thing different, Possibilities are-

1- Throat infection.

2- Cardiac problem.

Keeping these things in mind if you do not have any irritation and pain in throat than sore throat may be ruled out and it will be wise step to get yourself checked by cardiologist.
