In brief: Anxiety ?

Common reasons in your case could be panic attack and asthma.
Pulmonary hypertension can not be excluded although less likely since symptoms are usually present for a longer period of time and are progressive, will need an echocardiogram to rule our. If your ekc(ecg) was fine in er then no need to persue it but please discuss with your pcp.

In brief: Echo

Pulmonary hypertension can mimic pots but usually indirect measurements of pulmonary pressure are made on the echo, and would have been noted.
Read your echo report carefully. Exercise is very hard for some folks with pots.
