Iron Infusions
Jul 28, 2005
I suffer from fatigue. Some days I can't do anything. My hemoglobin averages around 11.5 with a low point of 10.5. Both my iron and ferritin are usally both below 10. I have been on oral iron for the past three years and my blood counts have always been slowely getting worse. My doctors don't belive that my Anemia is causing my fatigue. Some don't eaven think that I am really anemic. In February I received an iron injection from a naturalpath. Three days after the injection I felt so much better. The affects of the injection lasted around three weeks. When I approached my Hematoloigest about an iron infusion (I guess that injections ars no longer done by Dr) he felt that I was not amemic enough to justify an infusion. After a month on oral iron and some pressur by myself he agreed to provide an Iron Infusion. With my firsrst infusion ( 6 hours-I wished they would have told me before I went in) I again felt an increase in engery but after one month my blood count had actually gone down. Its now a month after my second infusion. My hemoglobin is now at 12.9 and my iron is at 35. I again felt a increase in engery for around three weeks.

My doctors say that it is not posible for me to feel an engery boost right after the infussions. The Hematoloigest will not give me a nother infussion as he now thinks my counts are to high to justify an infusion. I am once again so fitguied that I cant really function.

Has anyone else had this experence with infussions.
