Patient : Is exercising while anemic hazardous? I'm mildly anemic and a swimmer, so I push myself quite hard. I feel especially dizzy and light-headed while swimming and for several hours after. I also often get a headache in the process of exercising.
Will this have any negative repercussions on my health if I continue?
