Quick question - When you have anemia do you feel dizzy for many days, or can you feel dizzy just for one day and then your fine. Can just dizziness be the only symptom? Thank you.

Response from Mr. Molaghan


The dizziness associated with anemia is caused by inadequate oxygen transport to the brain and other vital organs, and sometimes decreased circulatory volume. The dizziness will persist until the anemia is treated. The dizziness can be one of several symptoms. Other symptoms of anemia include shortness of breath, fatigue, pale appearance, rapid heartbeat and pounding in the ears.
