This actually sounds serious. Have you had a cardiac stress test, as well as an echocardiogram and EKG? It's important for you to have these things done. Also be checked for certain hormone imbalances and lung disease. It is true that anemia could cause this, but that's so easily diagnosed I doubt 2...
