Brief Answer: Exercise related asthma. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for using Healthcare Magic. The most likely reason for your symptoms is exercise-induced asthma. I suggest you see your doctor so you can discuss this and have your chest examined for wheeze. You may benefit from an inhaler either regularly or as and when needed. I hope this is of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate yo contact me. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger, MBCHB. FRCA
