I think i might have malaria?

So i went to the dominican republic in june and had taken no protective medication beforehand and felt fine when i got home. In late august i began developing flu like symptoms! Wheezy cough, shortness of breath. It just felt like any other time i had flu.

However we're in december and this flu has came and gone about 4 times since august and each time gradually getting worse. So i've been researching the past few days because the lemsips, flu plus and other over the counter medication doesn't do the trick, it was then i stumbled onto the malaria symptoms and was reading thinking no way i have this, until i read that the symptoms can kick in months or up to a year after you return from traveling! I have 4 of the symptoms, breathing problems, occasional muscle pain, random bouts pf diarrohea and occasional fever!! Should i contact my doctor about it of does anybody have any suggestions?
