Hello....... It could be asthma causing symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness.For many asthma sufferers, timing of these symptoms is closely related to physical activity. And, some otherwise healthy people can develop asthma symptoms only when exercising. This is called exercise-induced bronchoconstriction .consult doctor. Repeat cough causes headache.
