Management Of Anemia And Low Blood Pressure?
Good evening doctor, I am a 24-year-old woman, I have a history of anemia and low blood pressure, if I walk or stand for too long I often feel short of breath, faster heartbeats, feel numb all over my body, especially my head, can even make my vision darker . Especially when running, about one minute I already felt the symptoms earlier. Is this the effect of low blood pressure and anemia that I experienced? How do you handle it? The problem is not very comfortable in daily life when it has recurred. Then I often feel my breath sounds a bit ‘ngik ngik’ so if I sleep too late or if I’m too tired, even though it’s not hard to breathe. Before I was diagnosed with asthma, should I take asthma medication?

Based on the complaint you made, there are several possibilities that can cause similar complaints. To get the right treatment it is necessary to know the cause of the complaint it is necessary to do a history and direct physical examination. Some possibilities include:
Need to do a more in-depth evaluation if as you mentioned you have a history of anemia, a repeat blood test is needed to find out if there is still an anemia condition and find out the cause of the anemia if there is one.
In the meantime what you can do include:
Maintain nutritional intake is still met
Increase fluid intake
Increase fiber intake such as fruits and vegetables
Limit caffeinated beverages such as tea coffee and soda
Sleep and rest enough
Avoid dust, cigarette smoke, pollution
Changing and cleaning sheets and curtains
Open the window of the house every morning so that air circulates and sunlight enters
Do not smoke
Do not consume alcohol
If your complaint does not improve or you are worried you should check with your internist to get further examination and treatment related to your condition
