ANGINA CAUSED BY ANEMIA

  • 1.  ANGINA CAUSED BY ANEMIA

    I have had long-term angina which has worsened within the last few months.  Had a heart cath yesterday and it showed no blockages.  My blood tests show I have developed anemia within  the last several months.  My cardiologist said the anemia could cause the angina pains and has referred me to a blood specialist (oncologist). Has anyone had angina caused by blood problems and what was the outcome?

    Hubert,

    I have never had angina and haven't had anemia since I was a small child, but are you sure your doctor referred you to an oncologist and not a hematologist?  Oncologists diagnose and treat cancer.  Hematologists treat blood disorders.  You might want to double check with tour referring doctor.

    Good luck,

    Ira
