    I've experienced this exact problem since I first got into sports at age 14. At first my parents took me to the doctor and I was given an asthma inhaler, but it had no effect. It's definitely not asthma. It's more like, I try to take in a full breath, and that last sip of air that would make it full just won't happen, no matter how hard I try.

    Over the years, I've just gotten used to it. No amount of exercise or conditioning changes it. I find it's worse on certain days and nonexistent on others. I've never been able to figure out what causes it, but after a lot of trial, error, and self-experimentation, I've narrowed down that it's somehow related to muscle tension in my diaphragm and ribs.
