Asthma does not generally preclude anyone from playing sport or exercising. However, for some asthmatics, exercise can be a trigger. Symptoms of exercise-induced asthma include coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing. Onset usually starts when exercise begins and gets worse about 15 minutes after cessation of exercise. If exercise is reattempted within 3 hours, it has been found that the symptoms are less severe.
