Brief Answer:
You are mostly having congestive heart failure.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Since you are having pulmonary hypertension, COPD, systemic hypertension and rheumatoid heart disease, your current symptoms are suggestive of congestive heart failure.
In this, there is pulmonary edema (excess fluid accumulation) in lungs.
This causes morning breathlessness, frothy sputum (foamy white), chest tightness, chest and shoulder pain etc.
Diuretics are the mainstay treatment for this.
So better to consult your doctor and discuss all these. You will mostly improve with diuretics.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
