When I exercise why does it feel like I can't get enough air into my lungs?
When I run sometimes I can't get enough air into my lungs and I feel like I can pass out sometimes. And at night sometimes I cough

its because all the rest of your muscles, leg muscles etc. have been stretched n warmed up while your warm up or while you get starting running where as your abs don't get stretched much and tighten especially when its a cold day, at night you may sleep in a cold room so your muscles tighten up so they don't loose as much heat. which then restricts the amount of air your lungs can intake.

Hmm. . .You may have asthma. Does asthma run in the family? Because my friend has asthma, and she can't run to much or she'll have an asthma attack. Check up with your family doctor to make sure.

What you got is Exercise Induced Bronchospasm(EIB). This occurs mostly in asthmatics but can occur in non-asthmatics as well.

EIB is a disorder that causes breathing problems during or after exercise. The exact cause of EIB is unknown. One theory is that rapid breathing during exercise causes the air tubes (airways) to dry out. When the airways dry out, they become irritated, which can cause the air tubes to tighten and get smaller (bronchoconstriction). Small air tubes make breathing harder. Another theory is that EIB is caused by bronchitis: injury to the layer of cells that line the airways caused by high flows of air moving through those airways during exercise. Research is ongoing to investigate these theories and to better define why EIB develops.

EIB can occur in people with and without asthma. About 80% of people with asthma will have EIB. About 5-10% of the general population without asthma will have EIB. Athletes have a much higher rate of EIB. In studies of Olympic and other elite athletes, EIB occurred in 20-50% of athletes without asthma. Many of these athletes did not even know they had EIB. People with allergies, sinus problems, or a family history of allergies are more at risk for EIB.

Breathing symptoms can range from mild to severe and can start during or shortly after exercise. The most common symptoms are:

Wheezing, Shortness of breath, Tiredness, Coughing, Chest tightness, Avoiding activity.

EIB can be treated effectively in the majority of cases. The best treatment for EIB is to use an inhaled medicine that opens the airways 15-20 minutes before exercise. These medicines quickly open the air tubes and keep them open for up to 4 hours. The most common "pre-treatment" medicines include Proventil ® (albuterol). If pre-treatment medicine does not work or if breathing problems get worse, consult with your health care provider.

A brief warm-up (break a sweat) for 5-10 minutes before exercise may also help prevent EIB. You should rest for 5 minutes after the warm-up.
