Asthma of any kind — including exercise-induced asthma — may cause a number of complications. Proper treatment can help you avoid them. Possible asthma complications include:

  • Poor athletic performance
  • Permanent narrowing of the airways (bronchial tubes), which causes difficulty breathing
  • Emergency room visits and hospitalizations for severe asthma attacks
