I have undergone a few tests and found out my exercise induced asthma has been misdiagnosed and my lung function is normal. The guy doing the tests was really helpful but because I get a tight throat and coughing spasms post exercise he said it could be some kind of upper airways disease. I just wondered if anyone has been through the same as me and has issues in the throat rather than chest. I mainly get issues after exercise but can get breathless sometimes without exercise and feel like I need to cough a little bit. Post exercise is the worst as I will get home and then cough all night before bed then wake up coughing. I have been having this issue after going to the gym for a long time so I don't think it is to do with my fitness level as I am out-performing others at certain exercises. I'm also undergoing heart tests as I had an abnormal ECG but I still wonder if there is any connection to a respiratory problem. I cannot find any info on the internet for upper airways conditions and thought I'd see if anyone may know of any conditions or has had a similar experience at all.
