Dear Ericar4988,

Thanks for your questions.
From your statement, I can gather that your heart may have started experiencing more strain from the severity of the anemia, than it can may be failing. So, you need to urgently check yourself into a competent hospital (with specialist Hematologist or Cardiologist service) for immediate treatment (which would most likely include blood transfusions).
Additionally, the cough may even be a sign of a repeat PE, which can co-exist with heart failure.
Whichever it is, you need to be in hospital.
Best wishes.
