Cough, wheeze, SOB: Coughing is the most common symptom of asthma especially if cough occurs with exercise or laughing. Colds that routinely go to the chest are very common in patients with asthma. Wheezing and shortness of breath may also occur with colds or exercise, but cough is the most common symptom.
