I was growing weaker, paler, dizzy, and short of breath for three months (February through April). Finally, I could no longer be stubborn and went to a Heart Institute thinking I had congestive heart failure. They discovered my heart/arteries/lungs were great......but my hemoglobin was 3.4.

After 5 units of blood, I was transferred to another hospital where I had a colonoscopy and upper GI. There it was discovered that I had an ulcer and that was the culprit of my low hemoglobin.

I was given two IV iron treatments.....and after the 5 units of blood and the iron, I felt wonderful. I was given a prescription for Prilosec (the generic) and iron tablets which I take twice daily for three months.

After four days, I returned home and three weeks later had my local G.P. do a CBC. My hemoglobin was 13. Normal! I continue to take the meds and I am great.
