Please let me know.
Have you had any lung function test or spirometry done at your GP's office to have a look at the function of your lungs?
I think that the best thing for you to do is that you need to have a lung function test or spirometry done to check your lung function.
You may also require a CT scan of your chest to be sure it is normal.

That is surprising actually.
Difficult question to answer.
I would do lung function tests and then go from there.
I am sorry that you were not satisfied with my answer but I firmly believe that the diagnosis of exercise induced asthma must be considered and ruled out in your case which is why I think that you should have lung function tests especially on a treadmill after strenuous exercise.
Using a puffer like a ventolin puffer before exercise will help you with your symptoms.
Hiatal hernia is a possibility, I agree, but the symptoms of acid reflux i.e. heart burns or burning in the upper part of your tummy are absent. Also, symptoms with hiatal hernia are worse at night or when you lie down as the acid comes up into the food pipe when you lie down due to gravity.
There is no harm in trying OTC omeprazole 20 mg twice daily to see if that would help.
If it is an acid related problem omeprazole would help for sure.
I would appreciate it if you could reconsider the negative rating and leave a positive feedback.
I would appreciate that.
