Patient : Hi, I am wondering about the possibility that I may have exercise induced asthma. I have a fit 20 year old rugby player, but I have always suffered with my fitness levels for as long as I can remember. I'm 6'1 and weigh 215, while I run worse fitness tests than other players on my team that weigh 270 pounds. This is of great concern to me as I have competed for positions on national level teams. When running fitness, I often experience a tight chest and sore lungs, along with occasional mucus build up. Thanks for all your help
