Short of breath: After a cold can have some residual bronchitis but generally wouldn't be noticeable. If really short of breath would recommend seeing your doctor for evaluation to be sure something additonal isn't going on.

Post viral : Post viral inflammation may lead to symptoms that are similar to asthma. Please see your physician to rule out other causes.
