Brief Answer:
May be more a middle ear rather than heart issue

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query. Given your recent infection, as well as the symptoms of fullness in right ear (perhaps due to accumulated fluid in the middle ear) as well as the tinnitus, the symptoms may be stemming more from a middle ear issue, namely labyrinthitis or vestibular neuritis, rather than a cardiac condition per se. Nevertheless, the part of your history that concerns me as a cardiologist is the fact that you have been more winded with exercise lately; if the change coincided with the bronchitis then it would be less worrisome, but if it was present before that, it should be looked up into, perhaps with some basic testing including an echocardiogram.

I would visit an ENT specialist for further evaluation, a direct middle-ear examination, and he can decide based on the history and physical examination if cardiovascular testing is warranted.

Yours truly,
