What is your age, breathlessness develop suddenly? is there any prior history of breathlessness ? You must consult physician first, get Echocardiography done. Extreme breathless does not develop because of upper respiratory infection and it is not diagnosed by chest x ray, also there is no feature of respiratoy infection
