Cardiology - Cardiac Electrophysiology

In brief: Many things

The left sided pressure if in the chest and occurring with exertion could be coronary artery disease.
The cough, fatigue and shortness of breath could be heart failure, pneumonia, or lung cancer. These are the most serious possibilities, but there are many more that are less serious. The headache and back pain could be separate and there are multiple possibilities for these.
