Partial workup: You've started a good workup and ruled out pulmonary embolism, probably anemia and thyroid disease, acidosis (?) depending on your blood work. You need an echocardiogram with PA pressure measurement, pulm function tests with methacholine challenge, oximetry with walking to complete the workup.
