If your shortness of breath is only with exercise, it may be due to exercise-induced asthma.
However, there are many other causes of shortness of breath occurring either with exercise or even at rest. Since shortness of breath can be life-threatening, it is imperative that you have this evaluated by your doctor asap. If your shortness of breath is worsening, go to the er.

In brief: SOB
You might. Are you fat? Are you out of shape, is the air polluted? Are you allergic? Other factors have to be considered but exercise asthma occurrs after exercise and is associated with true asthma symptoms of wheezing and rather severe shortness of breath usually.
