Brief Answer:
Two possibilities.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to health care magic. I am Dr Ganesh.

1.In the case there are two possibilities which need to evaluate - first thing is cardiac cause can cause such symptoms.

2.Second possible cause could be the lung pathology itself, could be asthma ( allergic ) or COPD - chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

3.For this you need to get an x-ray chest - that will give a over view of the chest pathologies and cardiac general view, but for asthma special breathing test need to be done.

4.An ECG for a over view of the cardiac pathologies, echocardiography would give additional information.

5.So please get evaluate the cause and treated accordingly.

Good luck.
Hope i have answered your query,
