i recently got diagnosed with late lyme disease. could my shortness of breath, lightheadedness, chest pain, and rapid heart beat be related to this?

Yes: Yes. Lyme disease is called a "great imitater" meaning it can theoretically cause anything. Hope you get well.
A Verified Doctor answered
Yes: They could all be symptoms of lyme disease, but a good doc would evaluate you for additional or other possible causes. Often patients that are very sick can have coinfections in addition to lyme disease.
