In brief: Hmmm

I would recommend an er evaluation if you can't get into your doctor. You may have cardiac issues that require immediate attention.

In brief: COPD or pneumonia

While the list of possibilities is very long, COPD exacerbation, acute pneumonia, or pulmonary fibrosis are at the top of the list.
Get evaluated soon, if you feel very poorly today. Make sure a chest x-ray is done and eventually get pulmonary function tests.... Good luck!
