I am female, senior.
5 yrs. ago I had routine blood work & my Dr. called & told me to get right to the hospital because my iron levels were very low.
I was admitted & had 4 blood infusions.
Had an endoscopy & showed bleeding ulcers.
A colonoscopy could not be done due to a curved sigmoid.
I was discharged after a week of testing & released with daily iron , 325 & omeprazole 40 mg.
I have been fine since but recently experienced severe tiredness, shortness of breath, RLS, itching , loss of hair, feeling exhausted & lack of interest in doing anything.
I was placed on iron, 325 for 2 months & bloodwork was just done.
Dr. was pleased that my iron has improved considerably & my symptoms are much improved.
I need to stay on iron & now zantac for the next 3 months before next appoint.
Hope you start to feel much better !:
