Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting the query

With the symptoms you have described I do strongly feel you could be having either cardiac related problems or allergic bronchitis.

Cardiac conditions in your age could be the prime cause of cough and breathlessness during stress. I would suggest you to consult your doctor for a thorough evaluation rather than taking OTC medicines unnecessarily. The earlier you consult the doctor the better it would be for you.

Hope I have answered your query; I will be available for the follow-up queries.
