I've had PV for 5 years and managed by venesections and aspirin. My bloods are all OK for me. In the past when my GP did a blood test he thought my body was short of iron, but my Haemo said they were OK and did another venesection. I have noticed that I am getting short of breath when I go up hill. I've had a couple of ecgs and that was OK, had an ecg on treadmill yesterday and even though I couldn't complete the full test for them to get all the information they wanted, there wasn't anything obvious jumping out. Due to go for an ultrasound test to make sure walls of the heart are moving properly. I'm thinking along the lines if my body is short of iron, then my haemaglobin level is low (like being anaemic) and this may be the problem. Anybody else been short of breath with PV which is being managed. Thanks Marc
