Hello Christinalee and welcome to HCM
I am General and Family Physician and read your mail in detail. According to the symptoms and investigation you have given in the mail, it seems that you have Chronic Pancreatitis (Inflammation in the Pancreas), as you have distended abdomen, higher Serum amylase level, don't know about BP usually it is at lower site. Have history of Alcohol? does pain increasing after taking meal?
But you have to be investigated properly and in detail for other diseases also.
Don't know about your Renal Function test and urine output per day (as you have swelling in abdomen and lower extremities, breathing difficulty, don't know about your Heamogram). It seems that you might have Anemia.
Get your X-ray Chest done to rule out any disease related to Respiratory System causing difficulty in breathing.
In my opinion you have to go to ER and get investigated in detail by your doctor and get treatment as early as possible.
Best Wishes
