Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
how low is your iron?
Thank you for requesting my service, Low iron can cause symptoms of leg aching and restless legs, palpitations, fatigue and shortness of breath. Can you give me some more details. Thank you.
Thank you for your question, these all symptoms you have mentioned can be due to low iron levels. Iron replacement with oral intake of iron supplements helps on most cases to recover these symptoms .. Thank you.
It shouldn't cause shortness of breath
what other tests have been done?
I would recommend pulmonary function tests for sure
That needs to be worked up for heart failure
you need an echocardiogram or ultrasound of your heart
In that case, I think you are probably right
the lung workup is needed
