Patient :I have iron deficiency anemia and the other day I passed out but my friends said it looked like I was having a seizure and now I'm having difficulty catching my breath and chest pains. What could be the problem?
Symptoms: Shortness of breathe, fatigue, chest pains
Thank you for writing to us.
There is no link between Iron deficiency anemia and Seizures. If you think you had an episode of seizures, you need to see a neurologist. The Neurologist will do an EEG to rule out seizures.
Till then, please avoid bright lights, loud music and alcohol to prevent seizures. And see a Doctor as soon as possible.
Wishing you a quick recovery.
