My daughter is 22 years old and in excellent health. She began running in the Fall 2011, 4-7 days a week, 2-4 miles. Over that time, she has had the following symptoms (maybe 10 times total), during and then continuing after running (for about 15 min) - shortness of breathpain in chestear and jaw painPreviously, she was away at school when this occurred, and told no one. Yesterday at home, on a day with perfect running conditions - mid 70s temp, no humidity - it happened again, and she told me. She is scheduled to spend the summer in Ecuador, leaving this SATURDAY. Should she see a doctor before she leaves?
