What about a cardiac workup such as stress test ?
Do you know what your cardiac ejection fraction is?
Ok. Well you need to have some test run to find out what is going on.
Some possible causes could be:
~blood clot in lungs
~high blood pressure in lungs
~leaky heart valves
~fluid in lungs

Your doctor may have some pulmonary (lung) function test done and cardiac.
