In brief: Doctor ASAP
If you're having a sudden change in your breathing - 911 to the hospital immediately.
If the breathing problems have been gradual over days to weeks, especially if it's worse when lying down and you notice your feet swollen, we worry about the heart having trouble pumping (and fluid is backing up in the lungs and the rest of your body). Time to see your doctor asap to get examined.

In brief: Heart doc
Do you see a heart doctor? If not then have you seen your primary doctor about it.
Sounds like you may have congestive heart failure. It needs to be treated immediately.
