It is difficult for me to tell whether your symptoms of breathlessness is caused due to a cardiac or pulmonary cause. Evaluation of the dyspnea will require blood tests like a complete blood count, thyroid levels, a chest x- ray or CT, spirometry, and allergic testing. I would suggest you to consult a doctor or respirologist for further evaluation.
