I'm 15, and I'm anemic. It was found by accident kinda. I went in to the drs cuz I had a bad cold that wouldn't go away and my mom mentioned that I get dizzy a lot and tend to run into things and fall over cuz of that. He suggested an echocardiogram and blood work. so yeah, im anemic and I'm supposed to take iron pills but they mess up my stomach so I dont. Anywayz, My question is...I've been having chest pains and I was wondering if this could be anemia related, and if not do you think it could be serious?! The pain is on/off and it's pretty dull but sometimes it takes the breath outta me. Please respond a.s.a.p! Thanx!

Hi jellybean, iron is needed to make red blood cells which carries oxygen to all organs and parts of your body. Since your doctor I assume did a cardiogram and ruled out your heart, it could be that you're getting chest pain from anemia. Shortness of breath can also be caused by anemia. You must try to get your iron levels up. There are several different formulas of iron and some are more easily tolerated then others. Also try to increase iron rich foods in your diet. Take care and I hope you feel better soon.
