Anaemia And Breathlessness
Could be: Pallor is one of the sign of anemia. Shortness of breath on exertion presents when your body does not get enough/adequate oxygenation- either from anemia/decreased level of hb (not enough hb to carries o2 to the lung and other vital organs), or other causes- such as problems with the lungs/heart. You should see your md to have a complete evaluation to find the cause and further treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
See doctor: If your shortness of breath is truly from anemia then that means your blood level is pretty low, and you should be evaluated by a doctor and you might need a blood transfusion. Shortness of breath could be due to other reasons even if u have anemia. Anxiety, fast heart rate (from caffeine) etc.
May be: Shortness of breath b, cause of anemia is fluid overload so, little help may be not really.
Pr3 elevated at 3.9 u/ml labcorp, with no anca titre. Anemia, kidney issue and shortness of breath: should vasculitid be worked up? Diabetic patient.
Syndrome: What you describe could have many causes. The two you mention are among the possibilities.

I had anemia back then. I wanted to know how to detect leukemia? I have fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath once I hurry up the stairs. Lossappeta
Evry while dyspnea for days special when wake up. Lungs, thyoroid, cardiac echo ok, iron 4/hemato34\feritine 10, is anemia reason? More investigation?
Too much testing is: It is not a good idea to keep doing all sorts of tests which may not be relevant because they can only mislead you. If you have trouble breathing, get a lung specialist (pulmonologist) to check you and make sure you do not have asthma or airway allergy.
I have known anemia/gerd/scarring in my lung & recent lar of rectal ca (ned now). New onset of shortness of breath. Do I need to see my dr? Which one?
Start with surgeon: Many things can cause shortness of breath, including some of the things you listed. However new onset of shortness of breath after recent lar always raises the possibility of pulmonary emboli (unlikely but needs to be considered). Start with your surgeon who will start with a chest xray and if significant concerns will get a ct scan. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

? heart problem: Get checked by your doctor. There are other causes for dyspnoea such as heart problems--so get checked out
If the heart and lungs are fine, no anemia etc but the brain receives less blood due to say hypotension could it cause shortness of breath?
Highly Unlikely!: Hypotension drives dizziness, slowness of mental function, etc; dyspnea (shortness of breath) very unlikely. Dyspnea typically a result of exercise, anxiety &/or increased congestion in lungs, as perceived in brain. Having a "normal" echo or MRI does no exclude this because they do not reveal diastolic function, pulmonary venous pressures or air flow; only possibly changes of chronic elevation.
