trouble regaining my breath--do i have asthma?

i play sports and sometimes and when i get very winded--like after a long rally or fast sprint i have trouble regaining my breath--like it may take an extra 30 seconds or 1 minute to start breathing normally.

i never used to have this problem--im over 50 now

is that asthma??

No it’s not asthma. Asthmatic patients can’t play these heavy games. And if they play they can’t be normal in 50 sec or in 1 min.
