In general, exertional dyspnea is the result of cardiac disease or pulmonary disease. The possibilities are legion here varying from aerobic deconditioning, exertional asthma, pulmonary artery hypertension, pulmonary fibrosis, congenital Aortic or mitral valve disease, cardiomyopathy, renal artery stenosis, coronary artery disease. It’s impossible to choose between these few conditions based on walking up the stairs as the only piece of firm history. One thing is certain the possible explanations include treatable conditions, with the potential to shorten your lifespan. Therefore I’d visit with my private MD, if you have none, then I’d select a competent cardiologist or pulmonologist in your home town & visit for consultation.
