Brief Answer:
Needs detailed evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome.
This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
Sudden onset shortness of breath could be because of cardiac or respiratory issue. This needs detailed evaluation of both the systems.
You will need a ECG & physical examination of chest & heart. I'll recommend you to go to the nearby hospital for it.
It could also be anxiety, but it is difficult to say without proper examining.
So, go to the hospital. I pray & hope that everything comes out normal.
Thanks & take care
