Brief Answer:
see your doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hello and I am sorry you are having these difficulties.
You need to first see your primary care doctor and have blood tests done. If your thyroid hormone level is off this can cause some of your symptoms.
You need a reason for your shortness of breath determined immediately. This could be coming from your lungs or heart or something else like anemia. You need blood tests, pulmonary function tests and possibly a chest xray.
Seeing a cardiologist is a good idea but you need some other evaluation immediately by your primary care doctor.
If you are weak on one side of your body and this is new you need to go to emergency now, you may be having a stroke.
Don't delay, if you do not go to emergency you need to be seen in the next few days by your doctor.
