I am new to this board and looking for some advice. I have been suffering from extreme dizziness, some nausea, heart palpitations and chest pains for a few months now. I have had oodles of bloodwork, EKG's, a holter monitor test, and a heart ultrasound done all of which came back good. I have a cardiologist appt. in October. I have been a fitness instructor for the past 6 years and have enjoyed a healthy lifestyle. Lately I can barely get through an hour of exercise and if I teach 2 classes in a row I am down for the count with dizziness and nausea for 24 hours.

My doctor sent me for another round of blood work and it came back that my Ferritin level is 13. My doctor says that ferritin levels could be causing some of my issues but not all and suggested maybe taking a supplement but didn't seem convinced nor concerned with my levels. I have begun taking an iron supplement, liquid, and am now just waiting.

I am worried that Ferritin is not causing these symptoms and that I have clogged arteries or something. I know that chances are slim given my age (36) and lifestyle but I can't help but worry. Every time I have chest pain I worry I am having a heart attack.

Can Low Ferritin be the culprit for all these symptoms?? :confused: I am just so tired of complaining all the time and feeling so crappy!
