Hi flmom38,
to your question as to how long it will take. Well it could take months before you see any change in your energy level especially if you are taking oral iron. Did the you get your hemoglobin count? Have you found out the cause of your low ferritin level? From what I have been dealing with for the past year and a half and 5 iron IV later, my level still can not be maintain anything above 49. The quickest way to get iron is by IV and several before you level are in the normal range. I had an IV in May and will get another round in a week, this will be my fifth. Taking a nap is not so bad. I would suggest that you get copies of all your lab work, and if you have not gotten a complete blood work up, you should ask for one from your doctor.
