In brief: See your doctor

Shortness of breath is a significant problem and a person with it needs a formal medical evaluation as soon as possible.
If it is severe and a new symptom it may even mean going to an emergency room or even calling 911. In any case the list of problems that can cause it is long.. Includes recurrent pneumonia ( perhaps with an immune problem, asthma, copd, congestive heart failure, etc etc.
