Pale lips headache and nausea, can these be symptoms of anemia?

Pale lips headache and nausea, can these be symptoms of anemia?

Most definitely: Anemia could either be from blood loss or lack of production of red blood cells. It is advisable to consult with your doctor as soon as possible.

Tired, light headed nausea. All tests ok but ferritin low at 16. Heavy menstration. Could I be having symptoms anemia if hem is normal?

Tired, light headed nausea. All tests ok but ferritin low at 16. Heavy menstration. Could I be having symptoms anemia if hem is normal?

I'd bet so: Iron is involved in much more than hemoglobin production, and people who are iron-deficient feel tired and weak before the anemia appears. Iron also keeps your muscles and mitochondria going. You need to find out why you are iron deficient and address the underlying cause (illness, pregnancy / periods, diet).

Could my anemia be causing yellowish eyes? Shortness of breath? Nausea?

Yes: Depends on the type of anemia. Some anemias will cause distraction of red blood cells and yellow tinge in the white of eyes. Anemia can cause shortness of breath, fatigue and low exercise tolerance

Daily nausea at night and in day. I always am on verge of throwing up and have to sit at work. Blood work is on and off again anemia. For a year now

Daily nausea at night and in day. I always am on verge of throwing up and have to sit at work. Blood work is on and off again anemia. For a year now

R.O lesion: Nausea for the most part is reflux of gastric content thru gastro-esoph sphincter. If persistent then some form of partial outlet obstruction of stomach present. The on and off anemia would suggest possible lesion near pylorus that is intermittently bleeding. Gastroscopy and possible biopsy of site of any path required.

Do I have cancer? Loose stools3X per day sticky, vague nausea for 1 year. CBC and Stool occult normal. Small iron def. Anemia.

Need to examine: Iron deficiency anemia in women is usually due to menstrual blood loss. Diarrhea itself is not a marker for cancer, you are unlikely to have it. However, it would be prudent to consult a gastroenterologist as there may be treatment for you and you may not need to put up with loose stools 3x per day. Wish you good health.

Dizziness, SOB, parathesia, prroblems concentrating, fatigue, feeling slowed down & foggy, nausea - can these be signs of pernicious anemia?

Maybe but others: Would have to discuss other options also. Would need to know your clinical evaluation and laboratory results.

I have had anemia before, latley I've been very lightheaded, dizzy, tierd, hungry, pale and have had nausea. Is it possable that I have it again?

Very possible: Your symptoms certainly are consistent with anemia, although they could also be due to a thyroid deficiency or some other problem. You need to see a doctor and have some blood tests to determine the origin of your symptoms. And if you are anemic, the next question to ask your doctor is why? Heavy periods? Poor diet? Find out the reason.

29f syncope. All tests ok xcept very low BP, mild anemia, met acidosis. Post fluids/midodrine= not dizzy & ^ BP 94/59. Y the nausea, headache, tired?

?: You pose a question in reference to a complicated medical question with a paucity of data. Its just impossible to say. Perhaps a viral syndrome? Why is there a metabolic acidosis? What's the blood sugar? Ketoacidosis can present exactly like this. What is the kidney function? Serum sodium? Calcium? disorder of each can cause similar sx. (and many other possibilities too)

What can cause almost constant nausea, illness after eating, hot flashes, anemia, and hair thinning?

Forget about diets: Don't be a fool. You cannot diagnose or threat this effectively by yourself. See a DR.

F, 19. Possible diagnosis? Seeing a rheum. In 2 wks. Anemia, malar, low fever, tired, bald spot, joint pain, positive ANA, night sweats, nausea. Thx!

Wait and see: The rheumatologist in 2 weeks, can't commit to a diagnosis without more history and physical examination, symptoms and lab results are common to many conditions, and need to be explained within the clinical context, best wishes

Duodenal ulcer and stricture. Abdo pain that goes to left chest and back. Nausea. Anemia. Faintness. Sweating. Runny nose when eating?

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.

29yo. Upper Cent abdo pain (w some tenderness); Intermittent mid-back pain; Nausea & excess saliva after eating. No anemia, normal kidney & liver function. Urine test clean, urinating normally.?

Stomach pain: Sounds like a peptic ulcer. You probably should have an EGD (scope exam). Cease all alcohol consumption. Avoid all NSAIDS. H. pylori infection is relatively common. Consider taking 14 days of Clarithromycin and Amoxicillin and add Pepto-Bismol. (Obviously under care of a physician.)

I have all these symtoms memory lost, deppress, numbness, joint pain, low blood count, nausea speech problem and my lawyer told me that not lead poiso?

Lawyer not doctor: Physicians are qualified and use labs to determine lead poisoning - if one has memory lost, deppress, numbness, joint pain, low blood count, nausea speech problem one shoudl be consulting with a physician and following up on recommedned labwork and consults. With symptoms like that, the least one should worry about is the opinion of the attorney - seek medical help.

Dizzy spells. Joint pain. Hot/cold episodes. Bloating. Nausea. Fatigue. Weakness. Low blood count- thyroid meds no help. Drs baffled-no cancer.

Non-medical issues?: When doctors are baffled, many times it helps to use your own natural healing abilities...The mind body connections which require you to exercise, reduce stress (exercise, like daily walks can do wonders for you) eat healthy, get adequate rest and 7-8 hrs of sleep, take time off from work to reduce stress. This will strengthen your mind which controls how your body feels and functions.

These abnormalities related? LOW Vit. D@15, Vit. A@24, Vit. E@5.2, B12@167. HIGH phos@5, hmcystne@16, RBCzinc@15.8. 20f feel "sick". Dr said cbc = anemia

Too much!: Please go online and carefully read all you can about the items you list above. For starters D, A, and E, are not often necessary. If you have anemia treatment MUST be the first thing to help you. PS: You do not give an age or your gender - makes it harder to be sure what is going on. Please keep me informed.
