General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi and thanks for the query,
Shortness of breath is a common symptoms especially in lung and heart disease. A clear family history is however an important consideration in its evaluation. Any family history of asthma or heart disease is important to be noted.
I actually suggest you do a chest X ray, a complete blood count in search of raised Eosinophils which could guide towards the allergic component and a cardiac ultrasound might put lots of things into perspective. Other organs lesions like acute gastritis and gastroesophagal reflux disease could have similar presentations.
Consulting a pulmonologist to me is a reasonable first step with respect to your health at this point in time.
Thanks and hope this helps,
Best regards, Luchuo, MD.
