Breathing: issues need to be evaluated by your doc. Please see him/her. This MAY be due to a physical condition but sometimes anxiety can cause a feeling of shortness of breath. How is you food plan and exercise level? Do you smoke? Peace and good health.

See your doctor : For assessment of your heart and lungs, it can be just reactive airways disease (e.g asthma), but you need to make sure your heart is fine first, best wishes
