Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Sorry to hear of your disease. In fact, there may be many causes for these symptoms, heart failure if causing low oxygenation, electrolytes imbalance, infection, drugs, even constipation, may cause these symptoms in your case. There maybe other causes but these are common. So you should see your doctor. He would investigate and hopefully find an answer for you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
