See doctor: There could be a few different reasons that's causing the symptoms you're experiencing. It's best to see your pcp so that you can be examined, to rule out whether it may be cardiac, pulmonary, or gastrointestinal in origin. That's best done in person. You may need to have other tests done to verify what's causing it. So don't delay. You may need to be referred to a specialist by your pcp.
