I've been seeing a guy for a little over a year now and he gets pretty ill at times. He won't go see a doctor and I can't seem to convince him. I'm very confused as to what's wrong with him.

He told me he was diagnosed with anemia and some sort of pulmonary deterioration in his lungs. He exhibits some very severe symptoms:

A great deal of pain in the chest (he says from the lungs)
Loss of blood (it either stays in his lungs or sometimes he coughs it up)
Feeling cold (I assume due to the blood loss)
Passing out and seizuring (which I'm told is also due to blood loss)

What I'd really like to know is if there are any specific disorders that encompass all those symptoms and what I should be on the lookout for. Also if anyone knows a specialist I should try to take him to?

Please, any advice would be useful. I understand I need to get him to a doctor and will continue trying, but would still like some advice.
