Hi just new to this whole thing.

A couple of years ago (i was 20) i had horrible headaches so often i was sure i had a brain tumour. Finally went to the Drs, had blood tests done and a CT Scan of my brain - clear. My blood tests showed i had a Hb of 94 a drop from 124 a week b4 when i gave blood. (120-135 is normal for adult female is Australia). My Ferritin was about 5 i think, cant remember and i had NO iron stores. My Doc thought the headaches were related to the lack of iron and thought i did not absorb iron very well so i was started on a 13 week course of IM Iron injection in my bum (Painful and still have the bruises to this day).

Anyway long story short the headaches went away when my levels evened out but still have problems with tiredness, shortness of breath, heart palpitations and dizziness and the occassional headache but i just make sure i have a big juicy piece of steak :) usually takes care of it. Oh and i was told to never give blood again.

Hope this helps
