    Symptoms of anemia?

    What are the many symptoms of anemia? I recently had bloodwork for lupus. Thankfully, they were negative. The rheumatologist sent the blood work to my gp, and he said I was very low in vitamins. He didn't specify, and I was so thankful not to have lupus, that I didn't ask. I was just going to start taking more vitamin supplements. I think many of the problems may have been due to anemia, according to what I've read on this board. If anemia showed up, I guess the gp would have seen it?
    My gp also said that I have a very small thyroid gland (?) but did an ultrasound and said it wasn't a problem. I have never heard of a small thyroid!

    Re: Symptoms of anemia?

    Hi Trish!

    Here are the symptoms that I have dealt with before and after I discovered that I have iron-deficiency anemia. I don't know if they were specifically caused by the anemia or something else. I've been treated for iron-deficiency for 2 months now and I'm still not better so I may have something else wrong so your symptoms may be very different from mine!

    dizziness --- off balance feeling, foggy headed
    lack of concentration/memory problems
    sore throats
    extreme nausea
    weight loss (I've gained my weight back since I've been treated)
    insomnia (possibly due to the anxiety - I take Ativan now)
    acid reflux (also probably due to anxiety)

    I hope your doctors find out what is wrong! I'm sure everyone has slightly different symptoms for anemia since our bodies all work in different ways but I know that since I have been on Ferrex (iron pill) my energy level and appetite have increased substantially! I still am dizzy and have headaches and nausea but at least I can exercise and eat everday. Good luck to you!
