These all signs and symptoms indicate some underlying problem which can be:

Infection in lung, liver. Some neoplastic growth in the body. These issues can lead to:

1) The decrease in RBC count
2) Anaemia
3) The decrease of oxygen supply to the brain.

All these problems can lead to:

1) Breathing difficulty.
2) Fatigue.
3) weight loss

I suggest you please visit a nearby hospital immediately so that problem can be addressed properly.

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

Take care
