    Anemia and chest pains at night?

    Everynight now I get bad chest pains that last 30 minutes (lastnight it felt like it went for hours!). It feels so tight and I have trouble breathing. Sometimes I can feel all the blood tingling down my arms and my hands go numb. It's getting so horrible! Is this from the aneamia? What can I do to stop it? And I'm stuck with no iron tablets...I'm in the USA on holiday (for 2 months). I had a blood test a few days before i left. I got the results while I was in the states that my iron was too low...Doctors over here wont accept a foreign presciption. Help guys! I feel sick.

    Yes! This is from the anemia. Go to Wal-Mart and ask for the "easier on the stomach" Gluconate sulfate ?? I think... it's a more absorbable form of iron and then make sure to take it with a fresh orange or apple. Take a tablet three times a day! (My Dr. told me to for a week) Then go back to one a day.... It will solve the tightness in the chest, the breathlessness, etc.... Been there, done that!
