im hoping you folks can put my mind to rest over my current symptoms.
About three weeks ago I was diagnosed with Pernicious Anaemia. I went into hospital with bad chest pains and was admitted with bloods of 4.4.
I was kept in for five days before being discharged as an out patient. I have accepted the the symptoms I need to deal with until my bloods improve apart from the shortness of breath.
I have had my loading dose of B12 and I'm on daily Folic Acid tablets. I had my last bloods done on Monday and they were 8.9. My last appointment with the hospital is this Friday for a final blood test before moving over to my GP for 3 monthly injections of B12.
My concern is that even doing the simplest of task like climbing up the stairs leaves me out of breath. If this was just something I had to breath through I would be ok with it but most of the time it leaves me gasping for air and at times panicking that I just can't get enough air into me and I'm clutching my chest in fear.
From what I have read online it's similar to angina attack.
Is this normal as I have only been diagnosed or something I should be worried about?
Oh, one more thing. I can't sleep laying down as I can breath. Taken to sleeping the best I can sitting up.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
