Can Anemia Cause Fainting
? Symptoms: Faintness, short of breath, shaky, tingling in arms/legs, head pressure, extreme weakness & fatigue-anemia? Hypoglycemia?
Many symptoms: Please have someone take you to the nearest Emergency facility - you need their care. Let me know what develops.
Duodenal ulcer and stricture. Abdo pain that goes to left chest and back. Nausea. Anemia. Faintness. Sweating. Runny nose when eating?
Runny nose: I will answer the runny nose part, that has no relation to the other symptoms. Runny nose after eating is called vasomotor rhinitis and can be treated with an antihistamine or anticholinergic nasal spray. Oral antihistamines do not affect it. Ask your doctor for a prescription instead of walking around with tissues all the time.
I start to lose consiousness lying down but I don't faint. I have anemia, hypotension, and hypoglycemia. Which one is more likely to cause this?
Your PCP can help: I hope you have a pcp/ an internist, to take care of your health problems. Each of your listed problems needs to be sorted out and well documented as to its cause and how to control/treat it. I doubt that you have all these unrelated medical issues happening to you all at once. Let him/her explain if they are really and truly present or not. It takes simple testing and physical exam to check you.
Anemia that cannot be cured (+ a hr problem at birth) causes my hr to fluctuate a lot and me to faint. Is there med 4 this? I cannot have iron or blod
My anemia-iron often causes me to faint. My cardiologist is having me drink a min of 5-6 l of liquid a day. This is working but causing bloating. Fix?
I'm feeling faint and have some symptoms of anemia I work out fequently my diet is not great and I drink alcohol everyday. Could these be a factor
Alcohol and anemia: Drinking alcohol everyday could irritate your stomach and lead to small amount of blood loss without you being aware. Have your doctor check out your iron count and complete blood count to see if you are iron deficient. Consider decreasing the alcohol intake.See 1 more doctor answer
Near syncope: Can be from many things. See a doctor. Are you saying you have a doctor who says you have iron deficiency anemia?
Many causes: This requires a detailed medical evaluation. So go see your primary care doctor (family doc or an internist). The causes can be as varied as a simple faint from low bp, to seizures or heart rhythm problems. But we need more history and details to figure out the cause.
Due to anemia, I often faint or almost faint. I cannot take iron pills. What can I do to stop this symptom?
Good question: Anemia is simply a red cell mass insufficient to meet the needs of the tissues without triggering compensatory mechanisms. A mathematical definition is a red cell mass that is more than 2 standard deviations below the mean for age and sex. There are many causes of anemia, that reflect either decreased production or increased losses. If this is an issue for you, you need to be evaluated by your dr.See 1 more doctor answer
Different causes: Anemia is a general term essentially meaning a low red blood cell count. There are lots of causes of different types of anemia. Iron deficiency is one of the more common types. A B12 deficiency can cause a different type. Your doctor can runs tests to try to determine a specific cause. If the problem remains, the patient should see a hematologist.See 1 more doctor answer

Many causes: Anemia is low blood count and may be mild or serious. Either you body does not produce enough red cells (blood cell cancer, uremia, chemotherapy, low iron, malnutrition) or you are actively bleeding (ulcers, trauma, GI malignancy, gu malignancy) or you are destroying your cells (inherited, splenic overactivity). Your hematologist needs to sort this out. If the cause is gone, you can do well.See 1 more doctor answer
Hundreds of causes: It takes me an hour as a medical school lecturer just to basically rattle off the list. Heads up -- if you are iron deficient and eat a reasonable amount of meat (despite the disinformation, vegetables are poor in iron), you're likely losing blood possibly into the gut from serious disease. Don't let them miss it. Any physician can begin the anemia workup. Good luck.
Low Blood Count: This is a rare situation for younger men. So, it must be taken seriously. First would be a general sense of one's health. Are there any chronic illnesses or infections? Next would be if there could be a bleeding ulcer or other situation in the GI tract. Any good medical provider will investigate this situation fully to make sure the cause is identified and treated.
Low RBCs: Anemia is a low red blood cell (rbc) count, also measured by hemoglobin, which is the oxygen-carrying protein within the rbc. Anemia is secondary to decreased RBC production (bone marrow disease, nutrition, kidney dz, etc) or increased destruction ("hemolytic")/blood loss (surgery, trauma, GI bleeding, etc).See 1 more doctor answer
