Centered Chest Pain, Whistling when Breathing Deep, Bronquitis?

User Profile
Today I have stronger pain (hard pressure) in the center of my chest and near to the heart than usual. I also do a whistling sound when breathing deeply. Last 2 winters I coughed yellowish phlegms almost all winter period. 3 winters ago, I had a month long cold/flu. About 4 yrs ago, I spent 3 months with my grandmother who had a terrible pneumonia in a cold/humid house. Now, I live with a persian cat in a 50 years old house in a very wet and cold country. I'm almost 36 years old woman. I weighed about 55 Kg and I'm 1.69m tall (pretty much slim type). I've only smoked passively for about 15-16 years at my family home. My father had chronic bronquitis since young and last years of his life, he was attached to a machine that helped him to breath, as the hospital visits to clear up his lungs were not much effective.
I wonder what I could have? Either asthma, chronic bronquitis, dust mite/pet allergies (usually I start to sneeze in dusty places and the pain is worse in the early cold winter mornings and when tired), pneumonia, COPD, heart failure, etc...What could I do to get/feel better??
