Need evaluation: You need to see a doctor for examination to determine why you aren't breathing well. Is it bronchospasm or swelling in your upper airway? You could have bronchitis or pneumonia which are both infections. Glad to hear you don't smoke!!

Asthma/bronchitis: You need to be examined and get a chest xray. 8 weeks is quite serious and I would suggest ER/urgent care evaluation. This could be severe asthma, bronchits, pneumonia or lung disease.- get checked ASAP!

Chest x ray: you should see your doctor for chest x ray to R/O lung disease/pneumonia.
