In brief: Sometimes...

Sometimes, the shortness of breath with exercise can be similar with deconditioning as well as asthma.
However, with pulmonary function testing, your doctor can often distinguish the two. If not, see a pulmonologist since there is more advanced testing available that can definitely tell the difference.

In brief: Exercise asthma

They both can cause you to be out of breath but exercise asthma is associated with true asthma, which causes more severe shortness of breath as well as wheezing.
