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). ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

?: 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.

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. ...Read more

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.

I have iron deficiency anemia and haven't been taking my supplements because they make me feel sick. I haven't had any periods in the past 3 months.

I have iron deficiency anemia and haven't been taking my supplements because they make me feel sick. I haven't had any periods in the past 3 months.

VERY serious: Iron deficiency will prevent you from doing the tasks you need to do as a teen-ager -- learning, making friends, building future career skills. The cause must be sought -- are you a vegetarian? Are you bleeding from a stomach ulcer or even a cancer? Parenteral iron is available -- ask about it. Not having periods is also serious and calls for a workup. Please get on top of this. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is ice chewing a symptom of anemia?

PICA: In medicine we call "pica" to the strong desire to eat or drink very unusual substances or foods. Children and adults with pica may eat:
animal feces, clay, dirt, hairballs, ice, paint, sand. This pattern of eating should last 1 mo. In pregnancy, in childhood, and in malnourished populations is more common. It is true that iron or zinc deficiency could be present but could also be psycological. ...Read more

If eating ice a lot is a sign or symptom of anemia & my labs are negative why do I crave or want ice?

Symptoms vs. Causes: Simple question, no simple answer. As complex embodied souls attached to a mind, fragile brain+body, variations in behavior are extremely common. Medicine is empiric more than scientific. While physicians often rely on symptoms as possible clues (where people seem to behave more similarly than differently), the relationship is complex & in most cases poorly understood, if at all & very individual. ...Read more

I eat a lot of ice. I let it sit for while until its soft people ask me daily if I am anemic is this craving a symptom of anemia?

Iron deficiency: Pagophagia, or craving ice, is caused by iron deficiency. Low iron makes you tired, pale, lightheaded, and short of breath, and gives you foggy thinking, poor hair and nail growth, itching, and restless legs. Although most commonly caused by menstrual bleeding, it is important that a woman your age undergo a full gastroenterology evaluation to look for bleeding caused by ulcers, polyps, or cancer. ...Read more
