Constant shortness of breath?

As of Wednesday I’ve had shortness of breath. (It’s not Sunday night)

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday ive only had it at night. I have a cough and mucus. Today, I’ve had it since about 6pm. Friday night I went to the ER because it was so bad, I thought I could’ve died. They did a ekg and chest exam, said everything came back normal. They then gave me prednisone and an inhaler. They wanted to follow up with a blood test to check for blood clots in my lungs, I told them no and said I wanted to go home (it was 3am)

I’m just curious on what you think could be causing this? I don’t know if I have a cold or bronchitis. I do not smoke.

    If it is only at night then it is not constant!

    What was the point in going to the ER if you were going to refuse to get the tests done?

      I had work at noon, the following afternoon and didn’t wanna wait another two hours for tests.
