Is bilateral pulmonary hyperaeration a concern while experiencing breathlessness?

Hello Sir/Madam, good day! I just want to know about my condition in this xray result of mine.. Findings: Lungs ar hyperaerated but otherwise clear. Heart is not enlarged. Diaphragm is slightly flattened and low set. Costophrenic sulci and bony thorax are intact. Impression: BILATERAL PULMONARY HYPERAERATION. LUNGS ARE OTHERWISE CLEAR I feel shortness or breath sometimes but im not a SMOKER. I also feel fullness of chest specially the left part and sometimes chest pain occurs. Thanks in advance and Godbless.
