This set of symptoms definitely needs thorough evaluation by Dr ASAP, especially with the weight loss. Possibilities would include a liver, gallbladder, pancreatic, intestinal, or kidney problem, & a thorough history & physical exam with appropriate lab tests & imaging (ultrasound & maybe CT scan) would likely reveal the cause
