I started using a tanning bed for 1 month. Then I got very tired and had my hemoglobin checked...it had dropped over a point and a half. I also had a pleurisy attack and chest pains with radiating down my left arm and into my jaw. I went to the ER and then my cardiologist...it is not my heart. It has now been over 2 months since I did the tanning bed the last time and my hemoglobin is slowly climbing. I have had a positive ANA just once after I had been in the sun too much. Did the tanning booth cause all this stuff?
Don't ever go back to tanning beds again. Not being rude here just concerned. In Australia there are banned to under aged residents because of deaths associated with them. Not trying to scare you but please be aware, be kind to your skin. Iam sure you're beautiful without a tan.
Thank-you so much for your responses...they confirm what I was thinking and I will never go near another tanning bed again. I found a spray leg makeup that looks just as good and does not stink. I never liked the sunless tanning stuff because of the smell, but this is easy. You spray it on, smooth it, let it dry and it does not come off until you use soap and water and scrub.
