Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The symptoms of the query are quite suggestive of -
1. A chest condition like bronchiAl asthma or COPD.
2. A cardiac lesion like heart failure.

I think I would suggest that you have a test -
1. PFT.
2. Echocardiography.

These 2 tests can help guide us to a diagnosis.
do let me know the report so that I can help you further .

I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you.
