Breathing with exercising

Exercising in hot, humid weather causes shortness of breath & weakness. Coffee seems to make it worse. (Is this possible?)
Tennis player also takes Vesicare, Doxazosin, Altace, Celebrex, & Prevacid. Blood pressure is normal with this medication and EKG is normal.
A minimal amount of running on the court in the Florida sun & humidity brings on symptoms. Problem does not happen when weather cools.

It certainly sounds like the weather has some effect on how you perform with exercise.  This is variable with different people, but the pattern you describe is not typical of asthma.  If this is causing you significant problems, you should consult your physician during the weather when it is a problem and have an evaluation.  Having an examination when you are having symptoms should clear up the cause and allow for appropriate actions to give you some relief.
