Shortness of breath: Cough, chest tightness and shortness of breath on exertion are symptoms of asthma. Asthma in adult usually starts at your age range, in the 20's and 30's. An allergist or Pulmonologist are specialized in treating this condition.

Start with having your primary care physician listen to your lungs and perform an evaluation. There are several conditions which can cause your symptoms. Asthma is one of them. Good luck!!
