It would be better if you could provide your age,gender and medical history as it could help to rule out your problem.Anyways According to your description,I think that you might be having FOLIC ACID DEFICIENCY
Without Clinical Examination and History,I cant confirm the diagnosis,this is my tentative diagnosis.
Here I am describing the causes,features and Treatment of folic acid deficiency.
Causes of folic acid deficiency anemia include:
--impaired absorption because of intestinal dysfunction from such disorders as celiac disease
, tropical sprue
, regional jejunitis, Crohn's disease, or bowel resection
--bacteria competing for available folic acid
--overcooking of food, destroying valuable water-soluble nutrients, including a high percentage of folic acid
--limited storage capacity in infants
--prolonged drug therapy, especially from anticonvulsants and estrogens
--not addressing increased folic acid needs of certain age groups, as well as in patients with neoplastic diseases
and some skin disorders (eg. chronic exfoliative dermatitis
Signs and symptoms of folic acid deficiency anemia gradually produces clinical features similar to other megaloblastic anemias, but without neurologic manifistations of B12 deficiency. Symptoms include the following:
shortness of breath
(inflammation of the tongue)
Conventional treatment consists primarily of folic acid supplements (about 400 mg. three times daily) and, more importantly, the elimination of contributing causes. Oral administrations of folate preparations are 1 to 5 mg daily.
Have a nice day.
