Yes, your level of anemia and iron deficiency can cause tachycardia and severe fatigue. It normally does not cause high BP though. You have some interesting findings on blood count and kidney function tests. Your ferritin (stored iron) is extremely low. This could have been caused by donating too much blood too frequently, or possible GI bleeding from the esophagitis. The diarrhea can result from the irritation of blood in the GI tract. It seems that ruling out GI bleeding would be important to do with a series of stool tests. Your GI Dr. could do those. The high calcium may be related to the elevated kidney function tests, elevated creatinine. Your parathyroid glands produce parathyroid hormone (PTH) and if in excess, it will cause high calcium levels. The PTH can be measured in the blood to see if it is excessive. It is unusual to see BP's this high in someone your age, and a good Dr. should do a work-up looking for physical causes of the high BP related to kidney blood flow and hormone levels, like adrenal hormones in excess. I think you need to see a good internist, hematologist, and endocrinologist in addition to your GI Dr. The high eosinophils can be seen in parasitic infections of the GI tract, like giardia, which cause diarrhea, so a stool test for parasites would be very important.
