Hello doctor i am a 17 year old male with

Patient : Hello doctor i am a 17 year old male with symptoms that include a shortness of breath that has started last week which comes and goes throughout, on some days it would be there for different hour variations and on others it wouldnt come up. I do not have any fevers or chills of any kind my appetite is still just like it was, i excersize form time to time, i am not obese. COPD and emphysema came up in my mind although those diseases seem severe for a 17 year old who is only a mild smoker. I do not even smoke cigarettes only time from time and weed here and there.
Symptoms:  Shortness of breath, chest tigthness, coughing
