Sorry for more questions.

Do you have any loss of weight?

no . i don't , that why i wasn't that worried am over weight i weigh 220 pound and am 5'5 ,

Thank you for the information.

There are a few possibilities for the pain.

Pain can come from reflux, peptic ulcer.

Pancreatitis pain can be felt here.

Sometimes there can be other causes like a tumor which can cause ball feeling.

But that would cause weight loss in 6 months.

Difficulty in breathing can be due to anemia as you have been diagnosed.

There can be a few possibilities for it.

It can be that there is less dietary intake.

Or it can be due to malabsorption, or it can be a loss of blood from body.

Heavy periods can cause blood loss.

You need to have an examination by gynecologist for it.

Cough can come from an infection, COPD, allergy & a few other causes.

I would suggest to have a thorough evaluation by an internist.

Endoscopy, stool examination, ultrasound examination of abdomen, blood counts, metabolic panels would be helpful.

Treatment can then be planned accordingly.

Doctor can decide about iron/ vitamin B12/ folic acid supplements for anemia.

Please avoid spicy foods, smoking, caffeine, alcohol,

Please take bland diets.

In case of reflux, peptic ulcer, ranitidine or prilosec can help to suppress acid production & pain.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.
