Can anemia (newly developed) could have caused my period to end earlier than normal? I have other symptoms of anemia too like fatigue and ear ringing.

Can anemia (newly developed) could have caused my period to end earlier than normal? I have other symptoms of anemia too like fatigue and ear ringing.

Heavy menses: ...can eventually lead to anemia due to the depletion of iron in your body. Anemia, on the other hand, does not effect menses; that is effected mostly by hormonal factors. Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) is not a common symptom from anemia. Anemia causes pale looking skin and shortness of breath with exertion.

BPPV?: Maybe benign paroxysmal postural vertigo. BPPV is very common, occuring sometimes in up to 5% of the population. It's most frequent in older persons but can occur at any age. Just as certain positions or movements can trigger it, positional procedures usually can reverse it quickly. Unrelated to anemia, hemolytic or other. Google BPPV for lots of websites; the Wikipedia article is pretty good.

Hoping you can tell me, is whooshing noise in my ear linked to anemia/iron?

Hoping you can tell me, is whooshing noise in my ear linked to anemia/iron?

Not really: If you have a marked and acute anemia, your heart may be compensating with an increased pulse but it is not likely to cause a whistling sound which may be more suspicious for a vascular malformation. See an ent.

Had a reaction to relafen (nabumetone) in hospital for anemia / GI bleeding now have weakness and headaches, ringing in the ears is this still from relafen (nabumetone)?

Had a reaction to relafen (nabumetone) in hospital for anemia / GI bleeding now have weakness and headaches, ringing in the ears is this still from relafen (nabumetone)?

Cannot be precise: But NSAID's as a group are not the safest items in many people, and you may well have persistent lingering secondary issues. Would be very assertive in requesting followup evaluation. Trust this can be readily stabilized.

When I raise my hand above head for 2-3 min, my hand feels weakness like no blood is reaching there. Is there any issue of anemia? I m smoking for 4yrs.

Probably not: Anemia does not typically present like this, but the position of your arm could be reducing blood flow. Ask your doctor if you could possibly have a cervical rib or other problem reducing blood flow to your arm. I have heard from many sources that smoking is bad for you, consider stopping that.

Pain in the front of my head eye aches left one have anemia feel slightly dizzy.?

Pain in the front of my head eye aches left one have anemia feel slightly dizzy.?

Further evaluation: You headaches and pain on the left eye could be related- cluster headache for instance- but could also be caused by other cause that still needs to be evaluated. The dizziness can be related to anemia. However it is not easy to really figure out what is going on without examining you. See your doc and have yourself checked. If you are anemic also needs to know what is the cause. Good luck.

I have two different anemia's and the burning/tingling pain travels from my head to feet. I'm also dealing with insomnia, migraines, and weakness.?

Anemia: You aree describing a great many symptoms which can apply to many different disorders or diseases. The fact that you have to anemias and some neurologic symptoms including burning, tingling and weakness may suggest symptoms of B12 deficiency or pernicious anemia. Either way, you should be discussing this with your physician.

Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches everyday in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches everyday in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

See below: Headaches are not normal. The cause is not easy to determine without additional history and physical examination. These may be due to tension and one way of getting around tension is by exercise. You may wish to start exercising, first thing in the morning. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

My son has Fanconi anemia, bloods are only slightly low. He fell on the back of his head onto concrete no swelling or concussion just little red dots?

Fanconi anemia: A child with Faconi anemia has lower than normal, WBC, RBC and platelets (Cells that help the blood clot). A fall on the back of his head onto concrete could cause problem of intracranial bleeding but if the child has been OK (no vomiting, no lethargy, no weakness) for fist 48 hours then probably he is going to be OK. Fanconi anemia patient may have more risk of bleeding. Consult hematologist

What could be causing allover paresthesia head to toe? Any other autoimmune or other disorders other than MS? All blood work OK except iron anemia.

Not sure: Sometimes we do not find a case of paresthesia throughout the body. It is not normally anemia, unless B12 deficiency is present. To be absolutely thorough, you may have had these tests to find a cause: 1. blood & urine tests 2. nerve conduction studies 3. MRI studies 4. skin biopsy for small fiber neuropathy If you haven't had these, that may be ok. Don't forget to discuss with your doctor.

Fever, night sweats, chills, heavy period (day 2). Pressure in head/eyes area. Low food intake. Iron deficient anemia. Planb 8 days ago. What to do?

Fever, night sweats, chills, heavy period (day 2). Pressure in head/eyes area. Low food intake. Iron deficient anemia. Planb 8 days ago. What to do?

Time 2C a doctor: Everything you're saying warrants medical attention, you really need to be evaluated by a doctor who can look at the whole picture, and help you out. Your iron deficiency anemia with your heavy periods means you should probably see your ob/gyn as soon as possible. Also please get help with your diet, so that you can eat nutritious foods that have iron in it, or supplement better.
