Shortness of breath, chest tightness, backpain while running. Suggestions?

I am a girl and I am a teenager. I have always had shortness of breathe while running. I am average weight and height for my age. Today at lacrosse we ran a lot and during the second lap my throat started hurting it was also snowing during practice. I kept running and during the fifth lap my chest got really tight and I had trouble breathing . My back also started hurting really badly. Also when I got home both places were still hurting. Please help!

Hi Missy,

From what you say, i suggest you get a lung function test for yourself to see if you have asthma. Secondly, if that comes normal, i feel maybe you are low on stamina. build up your endurance gradually and check your iron levels too.
