FP, IM, Cards or pul: Orthopnea is breathlessness that occurs specifically when lying down. The two conditions that should be considered are congestive heart failure and and advanced lung disease. You should be seen by a family practice doctor or internist or cardiologist or pulmonary specialist. (since you're using the medical term "orthopnea", i assume you've already seen one?
