Thanks for the follow up info.
After going through the follow up info, I would like to comment the following:

1. You seem to be having interrupted breathing discomfort.
2. I am assuming that you are not obese.
3. Investigations that may be required are pulmonary function test (spirometry with reversibility) and tread meal test and / or 2d echo to rule out major cardiac or pulmonary component of breathlessness.
4. Also an ENT check up of nose and throat is required. Especially to rule out deviated nasal septum.
5. Thus I suggest you visit a Pulmonologist and get yourself clinically evaluated as mentioned above.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer follow up queries if any.
Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.

My grandson is 7 years old and has lots of energy, but he getting brused on his body. He was checked by his doctor, and had blood work done. His white and red blood cell are very low, and platelet count also very low. He was in the hospital for more blood work and bone marrow test, - Ruled out Lukiema and something about Aplastic Aniema. Doctors cannot figure out what is wrong. He feels fine, just the brusies he gets from jumping running and falling. I started giving he red meat which he rarely eats.
