Mystery of my lungs

Something is wrong. I simply can’t run. I have shortness of breath, I am wheezing, my heartrate is off the charts, my speed is slow as molasses. I have no idea what to make of it. My x-ray was clear, my cough is pretty much gone, my legs are fine and so is my back. It is a mystery!

I started out to run for an hour around my neighborhood, but ended up doing only 33 minutes. I ran just longer than a 5k but had to stop 4 times and my pace was 10+ minutes per mile. It feels like something is in my chest; like little dust particles that interfere with my breathing. Strangely, I was slow but just fine on the bike yesterday. Yes, it is a mystery.
