Hi im 26 years old single mother of 2 and ive have a busy lifestyle due to wrk, school, and being a mommy. I have been overly exhausted lately, i find my self very sleepy around 5 pm and can't nap because im at work. I work 3-11 pm i usually get home do homework and fall asleep around 2 or so. I than wake up at 7:15am to help my kids getvready for school and i go back to bed after wards. I usually get up around 10 eat breakfast than i get sleep and go back to bed for a mini nap before work. So, this is my routine for about 5 days in row. At work i feel faint, out of breath and very exhausted with a constant head ache. I also feel heart flutters on a daily basis and and sometimes a thud which i feel dizzy afterwards. I also feel naseaus. Ive been to a cardiologist i had an ekg stress test echocardiogram and every test came out normal. Its been almost a yr i was checked. Can all my symptoms b associated with low iron. Should i worry about the heart flutters and all the other symptoms?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.
One of the factors responsible for this can be anemia because of less amount of hemoglobin and hence less oxygen supply. Take iron supplements for some days and eat a healthy, nutritious diet. If the symptoms persist then consult a physician and get thyroid disease ruled out. It may be due to hypothyroidism and you need to get your thyroid profile done.
