have i developed any allergy??? which triggers when i eat food.

when i do some physical activity i feel tired easily as i am not able to breathe.

Answer

The symptoms you describe could possibly be related to allergies and asthma, but the only way to learn for sure is to see your family physician, as only a physician can diagnose, and only after he has assessed you. If he suspects you are having allergies he will probably want to do some allergy testing to see if you are in fact allergic to food, or anything else for that matter. He may also wish to have you do some tests to rule out other problems (such as GERD). If he suspects you have asthma, he may want to have you do a pulmonary function test, which is the only true way to diagnose asthma.
