In August I went for my paps and had a CBC to check my high cholesterol and found out that my Iron was low again Hematcrit was 29.8,30.0 35.0 and Hemoglobin 9.2 and then up to 10.7 on August 31st. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with anemia and about a year or so ago I forgot to take my iron pill and then it led to me just not taking it so this is my own fault. So on August 14th I started taking my iron again. But it is shed some light on my dizziness, hard to concentrate and when getting up feeling lightheaded. The problem is I am still getting the vertigo feeling or a feeling of my brain having to catch up. Now mind you it has gotten about 80% better, but it's scary because at times I think do I have a brain tumor or something else wrong with my brain?? I can't get a straight answer of how long symptoms can linger even though when I went in and saw the nurse practitioner she said it can take up to 6 months for iron to get back to normal, but my normal PCP won't give me a straight answer of how long symptoms linger. I just want to feel 100% again and not have all this worry that it is something else like a brain tumor. Did anyone else have these symptoms and how long did it take for them to go away. I just need some reassurance.
