In brief: Sports asthma

is known as exercise associated bronchospasm (spasm of the airway in your lungs).
It does not mean you will necessarily develop asthma. If you are having trouble breathing, wheezing or coughing with exercise you should see your doctor for a work-up as there could be other reasons for these symptoms.

In brief: Yes

Most types of asthma are worsened by exercise and exercise induced asthma is a type of asthma that only occurs with exercise.
Consult an allergist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
