Welcome to e health forum.

The description of your symptoms is inadequate to make a proper diagnosis.

It is possible that you may have a subclinical bacterial infection within the gastrointestinal tract or the urinary tract.

A few tests including a complete hemogram, peripheral blood smear, blood cultures urinalysis, urine culture and stool examination might help in proper diagnosis. In addition a Chest X ray should also help to rule out respiratory infections (the possible cause of fatigue, and breathlessness).

If your symptoms are severe consulting at the ER for proper advice may be the best step ahead.
