wheezy coughing after hard effortss

so I only get wheezy if I REALLY push myself physically [even for a short effort] and my HR reaches its peak. Sometimes I'll feel it during my rides, like my lungs are irritated and I HAVE to cough. other times I feel it afterwards all day and get that wheezy cough, sometimes with that "popping" noise like I am coughing something up but I'm not.

sidenote/ I use to smoke for 6 years with no exercise, quit 3 years ago. also had pneumonia when I was a kid and used an inhaler during highschool. started biking seriously in August 2011.

so is it just my lungs irritated from the hard effort, or exercise induced asthma?

see a doctor and then work on building your cardiac capacity.

Sounds like EIA, to me. I would definitely get checked. You might need to simply have a rescue inhaler to use before going on rides and take with you to use as-needed.
