    Hi guys I recently started doing cardio again after a 8 month layoff. I do p90x type cadio. Anyway after a few minutes my lungs started hurting as well as spitting up fluid. Is this a normal part of it? I know im not in cardio shape right now but I used to do these workouts no problem. Could this be athletic asthma or do I just have to push through it? I finished the workout but had to take alot of breaks.

    Pretty much when I started my cardio up again and went partying the same day. The smoke in the club made me feel like I was running again

    You might want to see a doctor about that if it continues (esp. the "spitting up fluid" part).


    Go to the damn doctor!

    Spitting up or coughing up? I'm no MD but fluid in the lungs is usually never a good thing. I'd at least speak to a doctor and not get medical advice online. I've never experienced that no matter how long I've been away from cardio.

    I'd see a doctor. You might have a touch of bronchitis or something. This happens to me quite often but I know it's because I have chronic sinus issues which causes mucus to drain.

    What fluid are you talking about? What's the color, consistent and quantity? And no, it's not asthma. Asthma is when your airway closes and produces a wheezing noise when breathing. There's no pain associated with asthma because you're struggling to breathe.

    maybe it's acid reflux??
    a couple years ago I had these weird burning feelings/chest pains in my chest when i ran... At first I thought my lungs were fucked from my college years of smoking weed, but when I went to doc...the doc "scoped" me with this camera down my throat and discovered I had bad acid reflux irritating the lining of my esophagus... all the way up to ly lungs. When I ran... the irritated tissue flared up and made my lungs feel on fire.

    Started taking prilosec....and within a week it completely went away.

    So, does this mean you can smoke weed?

    I say the answer is yes since weed doesn't cause reflux.

    It happened to me with wheezing too. But of course...see a doc. The important thing is that it subsides soon after you stop the cardio.
