Chest pain, shortness of breath, etc. HELP!

Hi everyone. I'm a 15 y/o male with a couple questions.
Ever since August, my health has just been out of whack. I was hospitalized for stomach pains and nothing was ever found. Finally, in December I was found to have H. Pylori in my stomach and I was treated with antibiotics. The stomach pains finally went away but then another problem arose.

I had been having mild chest pains when I layed down at night and I thought it was just my GERD acting up. However one night it got really bad and I went to the ER. I followed up with a cardiologist and no heart related problems were ever found, which was good.

However, I was diagnosed with asthma. I used the inhaler and it seemed to have gone away . But not it's back!

Throughout the day I get sternum pains, and I can't seem to feel like I can get a deep breath without yawning. Also, my lymph nodes in inner arm only on one side seem to be swollen for a month! My inhaler doesn't really help the shortness of breath so I don't think it's my asthma? Also, only at night, when I lay down I get a weird feeling in my chest. I don't know how to explain it. I don't get dizzy or anything but there's a little pressure and it just feels weird.

I tend to freak out now because it never ends! does ANYONE have an idea of what it could be?

Once again: sternum pain; pain near my inner lymph nodes on one arm only, shortness of breath throughout the whole day that doesn't really get better with inhaler, and I know I already have GERD. THANK YOU!!!
