You should see an internal medicine doctor or a GI specialist.
You should have your thyroid gland checked.
You should have your stool checked for blood and for ova and parasites.
Low thyroid can cause the weight gain and the constipation.
It can even cause dry mouth and hypothyroidism or low thyroid is not that uncommon.
You should also have an EKG to look at the skipped beat in your heart.

You should put a lot of soluble fiber in your diet:
Oat bran
Peeled apples
Peeled and steamed veggies.
Stewed fruit.
Whole grains, whole beans, whole fruit.
Avoid fast food, junk food and too much animal food.

Exercises as well.

Good luck
