After a run this morning without an inhaler pretreatment (which felt as
OK as I could reasonably expect), I find my chest and throat feeling
constricted a few hours later. I know I'm already in the middle of a
bad time because I raked leaves on Saturday then had to use my inhaler
after a bike ride on Sunday morning, suffering both the leftovers from
the day before and whatever was out there during my ride.
Is it normal/common to have an allergic reaction like this a couple of
hours after a run as opposed to during it? One theory I'm entertaining
is that it takes a hour or two or three for the full force of the
allergans to "hit", and what matters is that I was out running in them.
If I had taken a 3-hour run, then I probably would have felt it at the
end of the run but not two hours post-run.
Thanks in advance.
