Thanks for your query
See i think your symptoms is related to your spray painting and occupation asthma may be a possibility or there may be chemicals used for painting related chest disorder.

So isuggest you a panel of investigation to reach your diagnosis -
1. chest x-ray PA view
2. ECG
3. Spirometry with bronchodialator reversibility on and off your job i.e. donig twice - one while in your job and other while you are away from your job
4. If chest x-ray abnormal then a high-resolution CT scan (HRCT) should be done
5. complete hemogram.

Consult a pulmonologist for getting locally examined and do continue the medications which gave you the comfort.
Thank you.
