Get checked: First of all, get fully evaluated. You have lots of significant health issues and these need close attention from you and your doctor. But keep in mind, pneumonia can frequently take a long time to heal completely, sometimes several months before your strength is fully restored.

Need doctor input: This should be discussed with your doctor as soon as possible, many causes are possible and some are serious. For example blockages in the heart arteries can cause exertion related chest pain, or a collection of fluid around the lung can occur with congestive heart failure ( pleural effusion) as well as pneumonia and may even be infected ( empyema) other possibilities as well. Would see doctor.
