Hi all, I am new here. I go to the gym quite a lot but recently after some high intensity personally training sessions a couple of times now my breathing has felt shallow like I should be gasping for breath. One time I felt like this for 2 days after the exercise which I thought was odd and tonight I feel out of breath again even though I finished exercising hours ago. I wonder if i have asthma or possibly something else? I suffer with panic attacks and this is different to a panic attack. Would be interested to see if anyone is in my situation or knows what the problem could be.

Also it is making me feel like I need to keep coughing as breathing in hurts and feels difficult.

Your probably suffering from exercise induce asthma, talk to your
Doctor about prescribing you a asthma inhaler, this is very common in some people. Explain to the doctor what's been happening to you,
before your next vigerise excersize.

Thanks, I have been to the doctor and that is what the doctor thinks it could be. I have been taking the peak meter readings but i'm not sure what the readings will conclude. It's only been twice now during very hard personal training sessions that my breathing has got really odd. I think there is definitely some sort of problem but I just hope the meter readings will allow me to get an inhaler as I think I might need one for the tough physical sessions.

It sounds very much like my exercise-induced asthma. Often the first way I know I'm having problems is that it will take me much longer than it usually does to recover my breath after hard exercise. Be sure you take the time you need to recover before continuing with your workout. Sometimes my trainer will even notice it first, and will make me sit down for a minute or two before she lets me do anything else.

As long as I use my Advair inhaler religiously twice a day I don't have these problems, but I'm bad about "forgetting."

Thanks for the reply Judy. I just spoke to a pharmacist today and they said to talk to my GP again and the pharmacist suggested not exercising when I still have problems breathing afterwards. Hopefully all can be resolved at the doctors.

My GP gave me a prescription for an inhaler and said I have exercise induced asthma so hopefully things will improve now. I'm not sure what exercises I should be doing or what I should be avoiding though. I hope I can continue to keep up my personal training sessions at the gym, I also do classes and go to the gym for workouts on my own.
