Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini, Gastroenterologist and I am pleased to answer your question.

Your son is having symptoms of esophagitis (the food-pipe is inflamed) and the probable cause is acid reflux disease.

He needs an upper GI endoscopy for confirmation.

For his constipation he needs fiber supplements and needs to take high fiber diet and drink plenty of fluids.

The shortness of breath he gets while climbing stairs could be due to anemia ( heart disease has been ruled out according you). His hemoglobin has to be checked.

You can call 0000 to fix an appointment with me for upper GI endoscopy and other tests and for prescription at Velammal Hospitals, Mogappair.

I hope that answers your question.
