Shortness of breath, metallic taste in mouth followed by cough post running after a long gap. Reason?

I just started training for with my school track team again, I took a year off to focus on karate. After running I have shortness of breath, a heavy feeling in my chest, a metallic taste in my mouth and I cough for at least an hour afterwards. Is it because of the time I took off and the intense training I jumped into or is there another reason?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. The shortness of breath after running along with cough might indicate that you have exercise induced allergy. I also think that the metallic taste in your mouth is due to a medication that you are taking. I wonder what it is. However a visit with a doctor should help explain the reason. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
