Many causes: Please have a chest image to determine the next best step. A pulmonary evaluation virtually is available at Healthtap. You may have an infection/bronchospasm. Monitor your temperature, consider flu and COVID 19 testing. Watch for weight loss, fever, cough. A V/Q scan and PFTs with DLCO may be obtained from your local medical center.
