Brief Answer:
Could be due to heart issues.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am

After going through the medical details provided by you I would like to suggest you that the symptoms which you are experiencing could be due to heart issues.

I would like to suggest some tests to be done:

1. Complete Blood Count
2. ECG
3. Echocardiography
4. Kidney function test
5. Lipid profile

If you have already underwent these tests then kindly upload the report files for evaluation and if not then it's advisable that you should get these tests done and revert back with the reports.

I would also like to know if you have any other medical issue like Diabetes, Hypertension or Thyroid abnormality.

Kind Regards
