Brief Answer:
Will need further evaluation

Detailed Answer:
This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
Short PR on ECG could be related to a variety of cardiac conduction abnormality and it is very difficult to say a diagnosis and treatment without examining her.
As she is having breathlessness and fatigue after exertion, she will need a 2D echo to confirm the diagnosis.
It could be just anemia or some cardiac anomaly will be confirmed only after physical evaluation and 2D Echo.
So in the meanwhile if you could get a CBC(Complete blood Count) and a 2D Echo done, kindly get it done so that a proper diagnosis and henceforth treatment could be initiated.
Thanks and take care
