Hello from JustAnswer.
If you are having significant shortness of breath, then you should go to the emergency room. Regardless of what other symptoms are present, significant shortness of breath is a reason to go to the emergency room.
If your symptoms are mild, then it may be reasonable to have further discussion through this site.
It is a subjective impression, so if you feel like it is significant, then it is significant.
As some guidelines, if you having shortness of breath when just sitting or otherwise not active or the shortness of breath is so bad that it keeps you from performing light to moderate tasks, then it is significant.
Since I have not heard back, I assume that the shortness of breath was felt to be significant and you have gone to the emergency room. I hope that everything went well.
Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.
