Hyperventilation and Asthma



When I am active, I often hyperventilate. I weeze often, also. Is this a sign of asthma? Can it be a side effect of asthma?


Increased ventilation with exercise is normal. Wheezing may not be and could be a sign of asthma. It sounds like you`re asking for a specific diagnosis, which is more than I can provide online. Only a detailed history and physical exam by a healthcare professional can provide enough information to make a specific diagnosis. Please discuss your concerns with your healthcare provider.
