Anemia/ Effects?
May 14, 2004
Hi, i am a 16 year old female. I was diagnosed with anemia at the beginning of 9th grade (almost 2 years ago). But I am still confused, the nurse said my iron count was low and gave me some iron pills but she also said i had anemia. is the low iron count causing the anemia or is this 2 different problems.

Well after a while I stopped taking them and I was fine for a while, then I started to get real tired so I started again and stopped. Recently I started again and I have stopped, I get real tired after any small activity, and its relly bugging me. I was wondering if I could get a prescription filled for this? I know I have always been told to buy the iron pills, but I think its the way the are, they just come in a box or a Flinstones tablets looking bottle :-) so I dont feel I need to take them. Thanks!
my mom has anemia. Anemia is a low iron count. the low iron causes anemia. instead of the pills ask ur dr about the vitamin b shots((thats whut my mom gets)) u cud also ask 2 b tested 4 lupus and fibermialgia. my mom waz diagnosed with anemia several yrz ago & persisted 2 tell the dr she thought sumthin else waz wrong with her. finally after skippin from dr 2 dr..... a dr finally diagnosed her with lupus, anemia, and fibermialgia!! she uz very weak @ timez, and it doznt take much 2 tire her out. she if often found sleeping or relaxing bcuz 1 small activity REALLY wears her out. if u have any other ?'z just post them, id b glad 2 help.... good luck!!
