Early stage heart failure
I'm under weight (50 kg) and anemic (10 g Hb, 3.3 million rbc). I'm experiencing poor circulation in upper body (dizziness while standing erect for 10 mins and corrects on lying down), fatigue, orthopnea before sleeping at night and coughing up small amounts of clear frothy sputum. Should I be worried about heart failure and get checked for it?
