It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. Most of your symptoms could be due to dietary deficiencies stemming from your eating habits. Your hemoglobin is abnormally low. It would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!
