Brief Answer:
Get done ECG and 2d echo.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
No need to worry for lung related diseases as your lung function test is normal.
Heart failure and coronary artery disease (CAD) can also cause similar symptoms like wheezing, shortness of breath etc.
So get done ecg and 2d echo to rule out heart diseases.
I don't think it is due to waterbrash.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
