Could i have anemia
Dec 31, 2003
I was wondering if some of my symptoms could be related to anemia. I am always cold! and my hands and feet are always cold too. When people feel my hands they say they feel like ice. Also, some people on the board said shortness of breath could be a symptom of anemia. I only have shortness of breath (sometimes really bad) when i exercise, so my doctor diagnosed me with exercise induced asthma but i was wondering if maybe i was misdiagnosed. I also am always dizzy like when i stand up fast - i get really lightheaded and my vision gets blurry and my head and ears start pounding (like my heart beat) When i lay down in bed, the pounding in my ear is worse. I've blacked out once in church, i guess from all the standing and kneeling. Anyway, thanks for reading this and happy new year.
Your symptoms are pretty non-specific, but there is an easy way to find out if you have anemia, and that's to have some blood drawn and see your hemoglobin count. As for your exercise-induced shortness of breath, your doctor did the right thing to diagnose that. SOB due to exercise induced asthma is much more common than SOB due to anemia....
