    Hey, I'm a 17 year old male, and I'm extremely unfit. I recently became an organ donor, and since then I've adopted the attitude that my body is no longer just my own, and so I've decided to try and become fitter. The way I saw that was to start jogging every day or two!

    So thats all well and great. Normally when I do it I've been trying to push myself, so this has led to me getting a slightly sore chest, and having difficulty breathing while running (I obviously take a break if this happens) but tonight I came in, and I got really light headed and I felt a dull pain in my head. Does anyone know what this is, and what I can do to stop this in the future?

    If you're finding you get light-headed, it might be worth carrying some boiled sweets just in case. Also maybe wear a neckwarmer at the moment since it's so cold.

    I have trouble breathing and I get a pain in my chest when I breath - that subsides rather quickly when I get in - it might not, and probably isn't, my lungs. I actually think thats down to improper breathing technique (I remember in P.E getting told to breath a certain way ).

    Thanks about the headache thing, It went away after 15 mins or so, I think in future I'll carry some water on me when I go.

    I actually wrap up quite a lot since I want to hide my identity...

    I would get yourself to the doctor asap and have this investigated. It could be something as simple as asthma (which definitely needs treating still!) or something else. I'm afraid advice on how to stop this happening in the future on here isn't going to help.

    Sounds like your not taking enough oxygen in when jogging which should improve with fitness but if your concerned go see a doctor to check for anything more sinister!
