Anemia: The low hemoglobin signifies anemia, and this certainly could have caused all the symptoms after exercise. It is very important to determine the cause of the anemia. You should see your doctor to begin the evaluation. You probably will need to see a gastroenterologist. This is very important. Do not delay. Good luck.

Anemia: You need to find out why you are anemic. ESR is a nonspecific test, it may be increased with any infection or inflammation but not going to tell what and where the infection or inflammation. Have a thorough exam and labs if necessary.
