Continuous spells of shortness of breath during walking. On anti-inflammatory medicines, Lortab for cervical disc disease. Cause?

No heart disease, no lung disease, yet I have been having shortness of breath at times when walking, not all the time. I was diagnosed with cervical disc disease, having some pain, but tolerable at this time with anti-inflammatory meds, and occasionally Lortab. Concerned about this because I have had these spells for over a year.
