Yes there is. I just read in this site about 'exercise induced asthma'. I opened it to read about asthma as my husband has asthma. That gives tips to handle that too.

Excercise increases the asthma attacks. So you should avoid excessive exercises.

I had an asthma attack (wheezing and all) after running in track when I was 16. It was embarresing. Still going untreadted. I ve always been afraid to exercise really hard after that. After that I took an aerobics class and almost passed out on the way home. Since then cause I started sleeping alot a doctor diagnosed me with narcolepsy cause I couldnt really stay awake unless I was at work. I don t think I have that anymore as I m not on medicine and seem to better regulate my issues. I think its all astma related. A doc gave me an inhaler to use before exercise, it didn t seem to help me much as I still rarely get the energy I need to exercise. My question is---- Can all of these symptoms be related to Asthma????????????????

I m 52 and have always been athletic and in good shape. Recently, I started to develop asthma symptoms that my doctor says could be related to exercise or allergies. She prescribed a steroidal inhaler and a bronchial dilator, neither of which I really like to use. Do you have any other more natural suggestions that I could try instead?

I have chronic asthma which seems to be aggravated by an unusually long and twisted xiphoid process. The asthma becomes worse after eating or with specific exercises - such as crunches. The xiphoid is swollen and may occasionally make popping sounds. There is occasional moderate pain and swelling. The xiphoid process is clearly visible near the base and spirals inwards into the chest cavity. Could the xiphoid process contribute to the asthma and should I consider having it removed; the pain is a secondary consideration but interferes with exercise

Is both can be done at a stretch? Is my age is a hindrance for the receiver?
Kindly answer me.
