In brief: Yes...

Any time you have difficulty breathing , you need to be evaluated by a physician since there are benign causes of this but there are also life-threatening causes.
If the shortness of breath is severe, call 911 and get to the er. A physician will be able to evaluate and treat you quickly before it gets any worse.

In brief: Absolutely

The breathing problems may mean a number of things: an asthma attack (if you have asthma or copd), or perhaps pneumonia (which can also cause your fever).
The two together usually is not a good sign, and so seeking medical attention is very important. Waiting too long can cause serious problems.
