Beauty, :)

I had chest pain when exercising, to which my doctor said: keep up the exercises BUT be cautious. How the HECK is one supposed to know how to do that (be cautious while you exercise) and when to stop? I don't happen to agree with him (the pain can be VERY scary, especially if you have a heart condition), so I have stopped doing my resistance exercises (1/2 hour at a time). Aerobic and resistance exercise are what seems to bring the pain on in my case. Now I and just walk, unfortunately not as often as I should.

If you have anemia, try to improve your iron levels. If the pain persists once your iron levels are almost normal, you'll know that your chest pain during exertion might not be anemia-related. Shortness of breath (which I also suffer from) can have many causes. I believe that anemia can cause it or at least contribute to it. Other, more knowledgable members of this board will have the answers. :)
