The breathlessness caused due to prolonged exercise is removed automatically by our body within short span of time of such exercise. This sense of relief is called ‘second wind’.
Causes of second wind: When we perform strenuous exercise, our body takes some time to adjust according to the increased demand of energy. So, the second wind occurs before the adjustment.
Symptoms of second wind:
i. Faster breathing
ii. Signs of tension and worry on the face
iv. Suffocation in the chest appears
v. Pain in muscles
vi. Condition of giddiness appears. These painful feelings disappear with the onset of second wind.
