Feeling dizzy and nauseous due to low blood pressure. Low hemoglobin levels. Taking iron. Vomiting stomach irritation. Why?

I ve seen a doctor couple of weeks ago because of me feeling dizzy and nauseous, he checked my blood pressure and it was low. I had some blood tests and found out that I have low hemoglobin and low iron so he prescribed me iron for 6 months. I somehow started eating better but today I felt a bit dizzy and threw up 4 times in an hour & my stomach won t stop irritation. Can you please help? Thanks

Hi and thanks for the query,
Low blood pressure and low hemoglobin levels require a proper evaluation, most importantly by hematologist. Treating without knowing the exact cause might not be very useful. This could e a problem at the level of the bone marrow or other body structures. A complete blood count, thin and thick blood films to characterize the type of anemia might be helpful. Depending on these results and clinical evaluation of the hematologist, a bone marrow test called a bone marrow aspirate might be necessary.
Consult your hematologist for a proper clinical evaluation.
thanks and best regards.,
