I have studied your case.

Suggests possibility of viral illness.

Another possibility of systemic infection leading to shortness of breath.
You may need to investigate in form of complete blood count, ESR, CRP,

You may need clinical examination also to confirm diagnosis.
Till time you can start medication and antibiotic consulting your treating doctor.
