    hi these are all withdrawal symptoms of smoking. don't worry . meet a physician for shortness of breath. or you can simply use a Duolin inhaler . but using duolin inhaler may also raise heartbeat. kindly get your lungs and heart checked once. you can get a Chest xray and ECG done so that we can rule out other problems. if both are normal then all u need is to divert urself from your symptoms. sleep as much as u can. workout regularly and meditate. concentrate on other things then everything is going to be fine.
