Irisheyes39--I would say that it could definitely be from a low ferritin. Usually the shortness of breath is most commonly associated with a more severe anemia, lowered hgb and hct. This can of course be different for everyone. I only had shortness of breath with panic attacks. I had Tachycardia and was no longer anemic, I had a hgb of 12.9 at that time but blood cells were severely small. So, it is hard to say definitively, but easy to guess that it is most likely the probable cause. You will know when your hgb goes up and ferritin begins to build. Then you can rule it out for sure. Some of these things take time to figure out. I'm glad that you had such good luck with the iron and hope that you are continuing with positive progress and results. Your Hgb is not too bad and should build soon with iron supplements. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
