What does it mean if I have shortness of breath after exercise?

I have been exercising for about 1 year and still have shortness of breath.

It depends on how much you have been exercising for the past year. If you have been really pushing yourself with aerobic activity to increase your lung capacity, shortness of breath be a symptom of a medical problem. If you have NOT been pushing yourself with aerobic activity, you may just need to increase your running.

You could have asthma, or you could be exercising too strenuously. Be sure to alternate between hard and easy workouts. You should consult a doctor.

Have you been checked for asthma? I am assuming that you are in shape since you've been exercising for a year so my next guess would be that you are asthmatic and you would need an inhaler to keep you from getting short winded. maybe a trip to the doctor is in store.
