I have had anemia for about 3 months now and i am taking ferrous sulphate 3 times a day plus a multivitamin, i'm very pale still and get breathless walking long distances and upstairs, my legs feel so tired. When i first was told by my docter he said i was very low in blood so i guess it 'll take time to get right, unfortuntely i also am suffering from panic attacks now and get scared to leave my house. I'm fed up with it.
I also had shortness of breath and heart pounding when I had anemia. After taking iron and getting out of the anemia, I felt much better.

I know what you mean by being fed up with it, When I first initially went to the Dr. I was having all these symtoms that I did not know what they were, so the Dr. ordered blood work, everything came back good except my iron level and my blood level was down. He put me on iron tablets twice a day for 5 months and I started feeling better so I didn't go back and have my iron level checked again,( which I most defianetly should have) and now 8 months later i'm afraid it is down again. I had my blood work last wed. but haven't gotten the results yet. I have also recently had to have a breast biopsy done( thankfully it came back ok) but the worry and stress from wondering if I had cancer or not for over a month was hard. Hang in there i've also been told it takes time to build your iron and blood level back up:)
Well, here's my bad news: I am wearing the King of Hearts monitor again for a MONTH! Sheesh! I'm so upset that my heart is behaving wonky. Ya'll might recall that taking magnesium was really working to silence the night time extrasystoles. Well, those are still fine but I am now having bad flutter. I will be really upset if I have to take anything for this. FLFLOWERGIRL, I'm like you, I HAAAAATE pharmaceuticals.


Anyway, the shortness of breath was awful when I had it, but mostly frightening time with anemia was the tachycardia. I don't think this heart business has anything to do with anemia, but maybe perhaps it's the supplementing, or even the time of day when I take my supplements. Who knows?

Maybe the anxiety is coming back. I just don't know.
