HI Dear

Welcome to the plateform of Health Care Magic.

As you have narrated all your symptoms, It all appears to be that you are suffering with some cardiac problem like you are developing congestive Heart failure.

Immediate attention is required.

Please consult cardiologist immediately. He will investigate you in terms of CXR. ECG.ECHOcardiography, and some routine investigations like Bloood sugar, Hb%,KFT, LFT, electrolytes etc.

You may be treated by your cardiologist according to the investigation report by diuratic, antiplatlets agents,cardiomimetic and cardiotonic drugs etc.

Hope the query is answered
