Male anemic?
May 5, 2003
Hi. My name is Tim. I am a 29 year old male and I am suffering with shingles and having a lot of pain with it. I recently fainted and was out for more time than I care to admit. I thought I had fainted from the pain of shingles, but my doctor tested my blood and said I have anemia too and that was probably made worse by shingles. I recently had surgery on my appendix and lost a lot of blood from that and I still am sore from it. Do you think that having my appendix out and having shingles brought the anemia on? Is it normal for a male to have anemia since most people with anemia are women? Is it normal to feel lightheaded when you have anemia? I keep feeling as if I will faint again, but I am already on bedrest from the surgery and the shingles.Any advice...this whole thing just seems so strange to me and I am confused!
