Possible: It’s possible your shortness of breath & dizziness while sitting are signs of worsening iron deficiency anemia. You therefore should have a medical exam with appropriate blood testing as soon as possible. Other possible illnesses, such as an infectious disease, can than also be checked for. I wish you well with your health!
