Hello,

I had a long time problem with severe anemia. My ferritin count was also very low. I definitely had a great deal of palpitations with this. Although I have other heart problems (leaking valves) my cardiologist said that my palpitations were coming from my anemia. I finally was given an iron transfusion that brought all my counts back to normal and my palpitations went away.

Just so you know - I took 2 iron pills a day for 7 month before I had the transfusion and they did not help at all. I also had normal periods and had all the tests to check for bleeding - colonoscopy, upper GI, endoscopy - all came out okay. My counts have all been good since the IV iron.
Iron transfusion?? I think I need one of those. I was diagn w/ iron deficiency at about 9 count and I feel like DEATH. I've been taking blood builder and it seemed to be helping but now I feel terrible again. I may need a hysterectomy, but won't I need normal blood to have major surgery?? Help.
