Ice Cravings

... Thank you for sharing your story because so many people, myself included at one time, think of ice chewing as something they just enjoy doing and do not realize that it is indeed a form of pica, and is from being anemic. It's amazing how immediately the urge to crunch ice goes away once the anemia has been treated!! Be well. (3 replies)

... It may sound silly to you, I can understand that. When I started eating ice I thought that sounded crazy and didn't tell the doc until I had a 2 ferritin. Now, I wish I had listened to my body because it was trying to tell me and I didn't listen to the warning signs that were clear as day! It's just better to be on the safe side if it continues, could just be anemia. ... (9 replies)

... I too craved ice, I was both iron and B-12 anemic, the ice soothed my sore tongue, chewing is a stress reliever, and it soothed my upset stomach. It's a coping mechanism, I suspect. I'm no longer crave ice! I don't think you can OD on B-12, get some OTC and maybe it will help! (23 replies)

... Hi guys -- I'm new to the board so I hope I don't wear out my welcome here by rambling. I'm hoping for some support or advice on my low iron. Up until a few months ago I had a PCP that, although for years had been telling me that my iron was low, had never mentioned the word "anemia" and was never alarmist about anything. He never even brought up supplements. When I... (0 replies)
... I've been feeling sick for some time now, and it gets much worse daily. I have a few things going on, but nothing the doctors have been able to nail down completely just yet.
