It looks like you are anaemic. And also you have to check with your vitamin and calcium, if the bones are weak then automatically the pain gets triggered more as there is less energy during any metabolic activity.

I am 75 years old woman having a wheezing problem can I take deriphyllin retard 150 mg.

If you take it blindly without knowing the cause of wheeze, I will say a big "no" please check up with pulmonologist to find out the cause. If any obstructive pulmonary disease is present, then it will help. Still it is not first line therapy, but add on therapy.
