Making this post short and sweet.... For a few months I have not been feeling to well, symptoms were weakness, heart palpitations, dizziness, unbalanced, symptoms are usually worse during my period..went to the doctor to run some test...tests revealed I had a ferritin of a 9...within in a few weeks of taking liquid iron and beet juice it went up to27....I was feeling better but not 100 percent so the doctor ran some more blood test turns out I was also deficient in vitamin D my level was 19 within 8 weeks I got it up to 96 I was feeling amazing but not completely I slowed down on taking my iron and my ferritin drop back down to 18!!! Yikes!! This was in a April, so my doctor said I should start taking iron again and stop taking vitamin D she felt it was to high infact its not to high the reference range is 32-95 one point above the range won't cause any harm...so from April to June, within 8 weeks I managed to get my ferritin up to 73....my question is why am I still having symptoms not all but some? And has anybody gone through this?

I forgot to mention when I stopped thing my vitamin d for a month I started to feel weak again...so I taking vitamin D again, I got in contact with the vitamin D council and I was told I should of never stopped supplementing...

I also had test for my thyroid tsh and t4 both within range...

Iron deficiency and vitamin D deficiency symptoms are very similar so now I'm confused and worried that I may have something more serious...

I also get shortness of breath..
