Slight wheezing on deep breathing after getting treated for pneumonia. Metallic taste in the mouth, chest tightness and shortness of breath. Am I getting a relapse?

hello , 3 months ago I had bad pneumonia and was treated in the hospital, it took 4 days for my oxygen levels to return to normal. Now a month ago I started to notice a slight wheeze when inhaling deep and mostly after drinking something hot. But the other day my chest started feeling tight, and if i would take 2-3 deep breaths in a row I had a sour / metallic taste in my mouth, I would have shortness of breath, and my head would start to pound like lack of oxygen or something. Also my limbs would start tingling . These are all symptoms I had before I went to hospital. What could be happening?

The symptoms doesnt look normal for sure.
Wheezing and breatlessness can be a sign of impending infection however sour taste is something different.
Maybe u also have gastritis and reflux of acid causing that.
If there is afever get an xray chest done and blood counts and see adoctor
