The tasting blood sounds a little worring, but the asthma should not be a problem. How log have you been training? When I first started training I was weasy when I'd finished, but after a few weeks it went away. I've brought a Peak Flow Meter and I keep writing down the results to back myself up when I have my medical.

When I train hard I don't taste blood. I'm sure once I've tasted blood before but that must have been years ago.. is it due to astma?

There are some knowledgable people on this site - http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/

Register with yahoo, or if you've already got an account then just log in and ask your question. Honestly they help a lot.

im almost cetain getting the taste of blood in your mouth is a sign youve had a hard runabout. I used to get it alot years back when i was younger either playing football or hanging out after a 'extra phys' at air cadets. think i remeber someone telling me it was a sign that youve exerted yourself big time. something about the amount of iron gets increased in your saliva and thats what you can taste, its not actually blood. alot of runners get it.

its massively common mate i wouldnt worry

They cost about £10 and you should be able to get one from any pharmacy.

Dude it's not blood its phlegm, I get it too. Just carry on with your running and do a lot of swimming, including swimming as far as you can underwater. This will slowly strengthenyour lungs and get rid of the problem. Also try antihistamines, they helped me a lot.

To original poster sounds to me like your cold is the cause or maybe you have a chest infection.
I do not think it is uncommon to get the taste of blood in your mouth even if it isnt either of the above, like many have posted i too do sometimes get the taste in my mouth.

If you wheeze after every run then you have asthma. Or something isn't right. I used to be an asthmatic. My GP is monitoring me now over a month or so. Recording my results day and night on the peak flow chart. According to him I no longer show any sings of being an asthmatic (he can't actually make the statement that I am or am not asthmatic, he can only comment on the results). He'll write this down, sign and stamp it. The only reason I'm doing this with my GP is that if you leave it to your medical they'll tell you to do the same thing. And that will postpone everything. Also, Navy medics are extremely hard, if not impossible to negotiate with. At least with my GP you can deal with it on a human level rather then having to wait 3 weeks for a letter. The only thing the doctors in the Navy will accept is a signed document. Your begging and pleading wont change a damn thing.

If the problem with tasting blood is serious, get it checked out properly. If it turns out to be nothing you're fine, if it is something and you do make to it training it will only escalate and get you in a hell of a lot of trouble.

Go to your GP, explain your ambition, most likely he/she may have even done a stint as an examiner for the Navy before (mine has). At this point you are far more likely to get a sympathizer or at least someone who cares a little. If your problems come out with the Navy doctors it will take you ages and you'll not ever get any flexibility.

In conclusion, GO TO YOUR GP and sort out your asthma and your weird blood in throat problem.

I think im ok with asthma, fingers crossed. I just found a website that answered my questions. I could of been weasy as i have a cold, thats what it says on the site. Also i used to be allergic to cats because of asthma but now im not, as i have 2 cats now. With the blood taste it seems like most of you get that, so that should be ok. when it gets near the time when i have a medical i will get my doctor to write a letter saying i dont have asthma no more, fingers crossed. Everyone who is worried about asthma have a look at this site, it does help. Also thanks for all your comments.

mate im a personnal trainer and i see this all the time , myself included

its just a sign that u have beasted ya self past the normal point , its the air going down your throat in and out so quickly as u are breathing hard making your body increse the blood flow to your throat , personnaly i would say it more of an iron teste ive never actuially seen any blood , even if i havecoughed hard after

if u see blood thats a different story

try and breath through your nose more this sometimes helps


cheers Ben
