Wheezing is the sound that results from the narrowing of the respiratory tract. Shortness of breath is indeed one symptom of a disturbance in the respiratory system but, it could also be due to other medical conditions. Shortness of breath accompanied by wheezing can be caused by asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, or tuberculosis. If you still experience shortness of breath, you can try to consult with other closest general practitioners to ask for other opinions about your condition. The doctor needs to re-ask about your symptoms, examine you, and perform other examinations such as peak expiratory flow tests or X-rays.

Do not rule out your symptoms are not related to the respiratory tract but because of other conditions such as acid reflux disease, heart dysfunction or anxiety disorders. Therefore, you should go back to the doctor, yes.
In the meantime, please do the following suggestions: avoid exposure to dust and other air pollution, avoid smoking, avoid interacting / contacting with others, multiply rest, managing stress well, avoid lying down after eating, and trying to consume food in small portions but more often.
