I have been having difficulty breathing for about a few weeks. Every few minutes I have to take a deep breath. It is starting to hurt my heart when I breath in now. What could this be from? I am on no meds yet.

This could be caused by pneumonia, among other things. You should see a doctor and get checked out.
