    Hi, haven't been able to catch my breath much today but it's at it's worse now - my chest feels tight almost like someone is pressing down on it stopping me from breathing in properly.
    I am quite fit - do exercise 3-4 times a week running & cycling, but when i go up the stairs i'm so out of breath it seems like i'm unfit when i know i'm not?! I also keep having chest pain almost every day.
    Something i should mention : i recently got told i've got iron-deficiency anaemia(ferritin level was 5 and hb under 11) Is it possible its a symptom?! or something else?

    (I dont feel its big enough to go to A&E but may go to doctor tomorrow if i still have it!)

    .. WHY do you have to come to Tsr for something like this? Call up NHS? or book an emergency appointment tomorrow. I highly doubt a qualified Dr will be sitting here to answer you

    Get yourself to a doctor or the A&E as soon as you can, you should never wait when having chest pains ( unless youve been working out in the gym on your chest) specially since your out of breath.

    Thankyou for giving serious answer.

    well they are more like dull chest pains not sharp ones and it's hard to know when i get them it's very random - sometimes just when lying in bed.

    Well what i learnt from the doctor is that sharp chest pains are ussually muscular pains whereas dull ones can be from the heart, are you having any other symptoms such as left arm pain, left shoulder, or your teeth hurting? I think just to be on the safe side you should really just go visit the doctor and tell them all your symptoms so they can properly diagnose you, they may send you for further investigation which would be a good thing since you would get a definate answer.

    Breathlessness and chest pain can be a symptom of iron deficiency. However, you should visit your GP as it can also mean plently of other things. Definately needs further investigation so do get it checked out.
