Every time I try to start running, I get this pain in my throat, and I want to know what it is. It feels like a dry throat, but there is a lot of pressure like something is swollen, and it also feels like someone punched me in the throat right about where my ribcage starts. Stopping running and trying to slow down breathing doesn't help because there is still a lot of irritation. BTW, I don't smoke and have no known health problems. Anyone else get this or know what it is????
