I've been medically discharged with anemia from the military late last year after I basically stopped breathing twice during training. I've been put on iron supplements first one a day for 3 days, then 2 a day for about a week, then eventually 3 and currently I'm at 8 pills a day, not including my multi-vitamins, calcium supplements, birth control and nasal steroids (Flonance).
Anyways, for the most part, when I was diagnosed with anemia, my HG levels were around 7-8, back in late September. By late November my HG levels have gotten to 11.0 but since then, my levels have literally just stopped. Refusing to go up but threatening to go down. I've been basically put on bedrest since early January and I've been arranged an appointment with a blood specialist outside of the state for next week but I've been getting extremely desperate for answers.
All my symptoms have been getting worse and I've been even getting more to add onto the list. I have severe chest pains, headaches, calf cramps, stomach aches, loss of appetite, extreme thirst, bitter nails, poor sense of focus/concentration, difficulty breathing, weird appetite when I am hungry, abnormal weight gain and loss (5-10lbs/week) I've been getting lightheaded more easily, I cant stand for more than 15 minutes at a time before I start to feel a sense of panic and my heart beats erratically, I've had low blood pressure, restless leg syndrome, my fingers begin to twitch on their own, Im always either abnormally hot or cold, I've experienced double vision once and I continuously keep falling asleep throughout the day.
In the past, I've had 43% lead poisoning when I was younger. It wasn't due to eating paint chips or anything but it was because of a contaminated batch of bottled water back in the 90's, I believe many people would have recalled this if you lived in the New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania area, where multiple brands of water were called back for shipment.
Anyways, I don't really have a family history of anemia. Only like a few people in my family have had it and all of them were minor cases of anemia, which was easily cured with iron supplements over the course of a few months. Other than that, the only other diseases that run in my family are Type 2 Diabetes and Breast Cancer. So, Im at a lost as to what is going on with me at the moment but Im highly concerned at the moment because I'm at a high risk of having a heart attack or my heart just failing before I reach the age of 30. I already stopped breathing twice and with my symptoms, I'm gradually getting to that point again where I have a really hard time breathing and I start to panic and either begin vomiting or choking severely.
