Asthma bothers me during exercise, even the least activity causes shortness of breath and tightness in my chest, not just cardio exercises.

Uncontrolled asthma: We don't know what type of asthma you have? At any rate you are still suffering, you need to be evaluated by an allergist/immunologist for better asthma control, meanwhile, if you exercise regularly you need to take a bronchodilator inhaler right before exercise, albuterol (ventolin), call this no in Cairo for an appointment with an allergist/immunologist if you wish, 0122-279-6437, good luck
