Runners asthma symptoms. A lot of athletes have exercised induced asthma. Many of them with the symptoms of the same as anyone else, with increased wheezing, increased coughing, shortness of breath, on sporadic occasions. It is a chronic lung disease, asthma is, but because many of the athletes have such self-discipline they can help themselves overcome many of the obstacles that asthma may, or could, have caused in their lives. They have increased their breathing muscles. And with the breathing muscles being increased they have built up a tolerance where they are able to endure longer and have less episodes of asthma. They're being maintained perhaps on medications and with good doctor follow up knowing that they're on the right medications, they're doing the right thing, they're doing exercise, they're eating properly, and that way they can run and many people won't even notice it. So runners asthma symptoms may be the same when they're having an asthma attack but they have fewer asthma attacks from the data that has learned because of their self-discipline and because of their tolerance that they have built up because of the increased breathing muscles have come to better tone.
