May 25, 2012 · walk 23 steps and get totally out of breath and heartrate goes up in Digestive Health

When I finally went to a different doctor, she gave me a CBC blood test. None of my previous docs gave me a complete blood count. It is practically routine. So see if in all those blood tests you have been given, if one was a CBC. Turned out my hemoglobin was 5 and should be around 14. I almost died. Got blood transfusions and am taking iron now. Hope you get this and it helps. Let me know. I now get checked every three months and I am in a long recovery to get strength and endurance back.

I literally cannot do any thing anymore. I go to the mailbox which is 23 steps and I get shortness of breath and my heart rate starts beating rapidly. The pulmonologist has run tests and has said lungs are clear. The cardiologist has run tests and says heart is fine. Anyone else having these problems have any ideas.
I have to take a shower in steps and immediately lie down with towels over me to dry. I cook a small meal for my husband and have to rest several times. I do not clean or do laundry anymore. I am 69 and use to swim daily and/or bike or walk daily. Now I can’t walk up the street and back.
