Brief Answer:

Need to visit an ER

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern and would like to tell you that the symptoms which you are experiencing require some detailed evaluation in the form of some blood tests and some scans.

Your shortness of breath and dizziness could be cardiac related which will require an ECG and an echocardiogram for evaluation.

Also, you probably are requiring a detailed physical examination and evaluation by a gastroenterologist for GI Bleed.

So it’s advisable that you should visit an ER and get yourself evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
