Why does my heart rate becomes high and chest burns while I run ?

I am a 27y/o female who exercises 3 times a week. I am average height and weight and in otherwise good health with no known ailments. When I run (generally outdoors) and my heartrate reaches about 170bpm, I find that my chest often hurts (burns), I feel extremely fatigued and wheeze. I ve not seen a physician as of yet so I am wondering what the chances are that I am simply out of shape rather than have EIA. This doesn t seem like a lack of fitness from my perspective.

Hi ! As per the data you have provided you ideal exercise heart rate should be between -145-160 , not more.An ideal heart rate is one which exercises the heart appropriately without stressing the heart.From your symptoms it seems you are overexercising, or doing unaccustomed activity too frequently.Try to bring down your effective heart rate to 145 and notice if the symptoms subside you know the answer.Else you have to contact your local doctor.
