In brief: Possibly

Did your symptoms appear suddenly, or have they been developing over time? There are a number of causes for these symptoms - heart failure, venous insufficiency, thyroid conditions, arterial disease, blood clots - and you should see your doctor to be evaluated for all of these things.

In brief: Not likely a PE

The good news is that it isn't likely to be a pe.
However, it certainly sounds as though you would be wise to get things checked out. There are lots of possibilities for what it could be. There might very well be some blood tests that you need to have done but it isn't possible to make any recommendations to you for what should be done without you having an examination from a physician first.
