You : You need to tell your coach, your parents, or any adult authority figure when this occurs. Chest pain is serious, and may or may not be related to your asthma. The problem with your nose may be simply related to allergies and/or sinus congestion, the tingling hands is a little bit more worrisome and needs to be investigated. By the date of this post, a few days have passed. Even if your symptoms have resolved (no longer present) i still want you to tell your parents or guardians to take you in to see your doctor for a check up. This is very important. Make sure you explain everything you are feeling in detail.
Good luck to you.

Asthma: All of these symptoms may be secondary to poorly controlled exercise induced asthma. Asthma should not be a life threatening condition but if it is not controlled then it can be. In an active 14 year old-you want to have this be addressed sooner than later.
