Gets out of breath

From the past few weeks, my mother is feeling like she gets out of breath very quickly even when she walks small distance or walk on stairs or do any work. I guess it could be related to lungs and heart. Can anyone please help me what should i do. She also have headache and gastric problems from past many years. Can you please suggest some full body checkup or something to diagnose all the problems she has.
