Symptoms?
Apr 19, 2006
Hi

I'm new.I was just told yesterday that my iron levels are very low.I have not been told yet how low.I wonder if that is the cause of all my symptoms.

shortness of breath - all the time
chest pain
being tired all the time
dizziness and being off balance also ringing in ears
headaches
heart paps

I had all these tests done because I had SVT but it was fixed last year.so they just wanted to make sure that my heart wasn't acting up again.I was also tested for blood clots since my shortness of breath is so bad.All came back ok.

I also have Fibromyagia and OA so I don't know what symptom is from what :rolleyes:

I will be talking to my doc tomorrow as to what iron to take.She tried to send in a script to my pharmacy,but my insurence doesn't cover anything you can buy over the counter.

So now when I go to work(I work at Walmart :dizzy: )I am going to look and see if I can find out what will work the best.

Anyone have any sugesstions on what works good?

Thank you

Rhonda

If your doctor has not recommended an over the counter iron medication, then ask the pharmacist at a local drug store or Walmart pharmacy. They know which ones are easier on the digestion.
