When she is sprinting across the field, she notices a whistling sound in her lungs and her chest tightness becomes so severe that she has to stop and take a break to catch her breath.

After she stops aerobic exercise, she tells you that her breathing improves and returns to normal. She also complains of a runny nose.

She denies any history of smoking and also denies any environmental exposures or seasonal allergies. She has 2 pets at home and has carpet in her house.
