What causes shortness of breath and digestive problems?

Hi there I have had woozy/fuzzy heads, nausea, real fatigue, shortness of breath and ongoing digestive issues for a number of years now. These symptoms have never been diagnosed, although I had a positive celaic result from a colonoscopy (blood tests do not support it though). A recent ultrasound has determined slight prominance of the hepatic veins and IVC which has led me to research IVC. I have no specific food allergy I am aware of, yet I avoid bread and heavy food as they fill me too full and exascerbates the symptoms above. I had a compression fracture of the L2 vetebra in 1992 and have had two babies since. Each pregnancy I sighed continuously and was always short of breath. My first born was just 2.5kg which was 12 years ago considered odd from a healthy moderate drinker. I am going to visit the same endoscopic specialist I have seen a few years back with the same problems. Should I be looking in a completely different area to digestion? 50 yr old white female :)

It is good that you are repeating colonoscopy. Imaging can be taken review can be made by other doctor. With result of colonoscopy diagnosis should be final and treatment should be started accordingly. .
