Hidalgo,
Sorry to hear you have been having trouble.  It is difficult to know exactly what is going on in your situation without knowing a bit more about you and being able to see you in person.  I can, however, provide you some straight forward advice regarding working this problem up.  From a cardiovascular standpoint, there are a couple of things that you would certainly want to rule out. Your symptoms may be coming from an abnormal heart rhythm or from a structural problem in the heart.  An abnormal heart rhythm can be easily ruled out by doing an EKG and/or wearing a Holter monitor (a continuous EKG) for 1-2 days.  Structural problems in the heart (like a thickened heart caused by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or valve problems) can be ruled out with an ultrasound (echocardiogram) of the heart.  If I were your doctor, I would suggest starting with both of these tests.  Hopefully you can work with your physician to find some way to evaluate these problems.  Anxiety and exercise induced asthma can cause similar symptoms during exercise and are less severe of problems then the cardiac ones listed above.  I hope you can get to the bottom of this soon.
