Why do my lungs burn when I exercise?

A Answers (1)

  • Your lungs burn during exercise because they are being used more than normal. This extra work that your lungs are doing may lead to an inflammatory process and also an engorgement of blood vessels in the lungs. When you exercise, more blood is sent to your lungs in order for the oxygen to be transferred to your blood vessels.
