In brief: Symptoms...
With exercise-induced asthma, bronchospasm is present during exercise.
Symptoms of this include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, etc during exercise. Once diagnosed, treatment often consists of a bronchodilator inhaler taken prior to exercise onset and possibly again once exercise stops. Avoid smoking. See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
