If you are anemic the only way to tell is with a blood count. No one here can do that for you. If you have blood pressure issues, go to a pharmacy that had a cuff and take your BP. No one here can do that for you either. If you don't take better care of yourself you will end up at the doctor, or the emergency room, sooner or later.

My daughter is seeing a Doctor tomorrow as a follow up for dealing with low blood pressure. She is 13, a competitive gymnast and has been experiencing light headed, dizziness periodically for almost a year. She had a blood pressure monitor take readings for 24 hours and it showed it was low at different times including when she was sleeping. Her ECG and bloodwork results are normal, I want to be sure that we rule out anything that could be serious ~ especially heart conditions. Any suggestions of things I need to ask?

i was in a car accident like 2 months ago, broke a few bones, had surgery(hip and femur)a month later i began feeling left chest pains, left arm pains...typical heart attack symptoms in other words. last night was the 5th time i went to the e.r. thanks to this pains and again they found nothing wrong with me or my heart so i guess the ekg and mri were all good. the pain is still there on a daily basis my parents refuse to take me to the hospital they think i m insane. my questions are can my heart be bruised or enlarged?or that would have been ruled out with the ekg and mri?they said its not my lungs but the pain is on left back also, could it be only muscle pain?i don t have insurance and all this medical assistance is pretty expensive. if anyone could please get me on the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, this pain is so stressing it feels like a tickle on my lung or heart and i m scared if overlooked it will kill me. by the way i m a 19 yr old grl and nobody in my family has any kind of medical problems....
