I have been anemic for years. I have started menopause (at the age of 38!) so that is not the problem. I have had colonoscopy and endoscopy tests run and they were normal. My counts stay low. My last hemoglobin was 8.6 and my ferritin level is too low to measure. All my doctor does is prescribe more and more iron pills. He says my bone marrow just doesn't produce enough to keep up. I work full time, have small children and I am just exhausted all the time. I have read about iron infusions on this board but I have no idea what they are. Why would my doctor not recommend something like that to treat my anemia? I have asked for a referral to a specialist but it seems like my doctor thinks my symptoms are all in my head. Suggestions?
