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. ...Read more

What is the ?: If you were having angina - cardiac chest pain after activity - you should have been calling 911, getting ems or going to a hospital, and not sitting at your computer typing. Tylenol, salonpas and xanax are not the right treatment for an impending myocardial infarction. See your doctor about your chest pain and work on reducing your risks - smoking, overweight, high fat/cholesterol. Take aspirin. ...Read more

Is anemia common with hiatal hernia?

Is anemia common with hiatal hernia?

It happens: Large hiatal hernias known as paraesophageal hernias can cause ulcers due to the stomach twisting back and forth. These are known as cameron's erosions, and are not uncommonly the cause of anemia that has no other known cause. I see 1-2 patients per year with multiple tests over 1-2 years, only to finally have their hiatal hernia repaired and their anemia resolved. ...Read more

Could my antacids be causing my iron anemia?

Could my antacids be causing my iron anemia?

Maybe: Some potent antacids can reduce the ability to absorb iron. If iron deficiency is causing anemia, and the anemia is not getting better on appropriate doses of iron, an antacid might, at least in part, be a problem. If there is ongoing blood loss or high iron requirement, from, say heavy menstruation or pregnancy, the amount of iron being taken may be the problem. ...Read more

Which alternative to tea with milk in the morning as I feel pain in my heart after drinking it I was diagnosed as a chronic anemia case ?

Reflux: It sounds like you are having gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) which occurs when stomach acid comes back up into your esophagus, burning the lining. You should avoid caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine which can make this worse by lowering the pressure in the valve that prevents reflux. You should be checked for H.pylori which is a bacteria that can cause this. GERD can cause anemia. ...Read more

I have pernicious anemia and have not had a B12 shot in several months. Could this be causing my bloated stomach?

I have pernicious anemia and have not had a B12 shot in several months. Could this be causing my bloated stomach?

Need vit B12: If you have pernicious anemia - absolutely, you should get your vit B12 injection as the neurologic complication from pernicious anemia can become irreversible. I dont know if the bloated stomach is related to your pa- or could be releated to other condition such as gerd, gastroparesis etc- you should see your doctor- have vit B12 injection and have your problem examined. ...Read more

My son is 3 year old and has severe hypoproteinemia and severe iron deficiency anemia for 1 year. Can eosinophillic esophagitis caused that?

My son is 3 year old and has severe hypoproteinemia and severe iron deficiency anemia for 1 year. Can eosinophillic esophagitis caused that?

No: Cold ( viral illness) very common in this age group. But iron deficiency anemia and hypoproteinemia are not. What is the reason for above two? And the main symptom of eosinophilic esophagitis----- gerd, and uncontrolled asthma. Does he have those two symptoms? You need a pediatrician and pulmonologist to satisfy your concerns. ...Read more
