After long periods of any sport like basketball, if I'm really active meaning if I'm running full court back and forth for more than an hour, I get this asthmatic feeling (according to my friends) where I can't breathe in deeply. If I try to breathe in deeply, halfway through it I would just start coughing. (and when I breathe theres this airish? sound that I don't know how to describe..) It only happens when I really exhaust myself in sports though. Is it normal? It usually goes away 1 or 2 hours after I stop. Or am I getting Exercise Induced Asthma or something?

Another problem not related to the previous one is that sometimes when I wake up I feel this tiny sharp pain slightly below the chest but above the stomach on the ribcage, to the left. It doesn't irritate me throughout the day but if I breathe in deeply, the pain gets stronger as I breathe. Massaging on the area where I can feel the bone soothes it a little. Sometimes it disappears in the later part of the day, sometimes it disappears the next day when I wake up. It occurs maybe twice per month or something.
