In brief: EBV

Infectious mononucleosis (glandular fever) seldom produces direct pulmonary involvement, but the fatigue can be profound, possibly resulting in a feeling of shortness of breath.
It can also predispose to secondary infections, some malignancies. Would need more info about what specifically you are feeling to answer this accurately.
