Default quick (?) question about exercise induced pulmonary edema

Been seeing a few more instances of post-workout cough on the CF boards (due to the colder seasons?) and it reminded me of my post here from a while back.

Earlier, I mentioned that I thought my coughing seemed atypical because it could persist for days following my workout. Is this expected with exercise induced pulmonary edema?



I'm well familiar of the temporary throat burn and metal taste from my childhood, running 600s or miles for PE testing. (Quite frankly, it surprises me a little how this sensation is so foreign to some people until they do CF as adults.) The striking difference in my case is that my cough stays around well after the throat burn and metal taste go away.
