All the above symptoms can be due to being severely overweight. You can consult a dietrician for a tailor made diet, as well as a biokeneticist for a rigorous exercise regime. You need to cut back on your calorie intake as much as possible with a healty balanced diet of at least six small meals during the day. You also need to burn as much stored calories as possible. A diet alone will not be the answer.

Good luck
