Hi, I'm Becky.
About 7 years ago, my doctor diagnosed me with Thalassemia. There is no cure, so I thought nothing about it. Two weeks ago, I went to the hospital because I was having chest pain, could not breath, and was fatigued. The doctor sent me to the emergency room and my blood pressure was 221/186. While in the hospital, they ruled out any heart or pulmanary problems. They said I was anemic (and I said yes,,,I told you that LOL) But anway, this anemia is Iron deficient hemoglobin was a 9 and when I had my follow up my ferritin was a 10. I am suppose to go get a prescription of Iron, B-12 and Folate today. I CAN"T take iron. It makes me sick !! What should I do?
I am so tired. I can't walk around much. I need to do things. and I haven't been to work in 2 weeks. I'm still having chest pains and I have started having this wierd little tingling in my tongue and lip. (what is that)
So, I guess I have 2 kinds of anemia (plus high blood pressure)-- Iron Def and Thalassemia. any suggestions??? OH, and with the new meds for the high blood pressure, my blood pressure has been about 158/98.

thanks for any advice,,,,,Becky
Have a Great Day
