Cold-induced asthma: You might be describing cold-induced asthma or bronchospasm, brought about by exposure to cold environment such as walk-in freezers or just going outside (if it's cold). Go see your doctor for evaluation. S/he may prescribe short-acting beta agonist such as albuterol to prevent these episodes if they're far & few between.
