To answer your questions, I have had many, many tests run...but the last bunch were iron, ferritin, b12(because of the tingling in my hands, feet and legs), folate and glucose. I am not sure what the exact numbers were. I only had a call from the drs. office saying "my iron was low, to pick up my prescription at the office." I am pretty sure my ferritin is low because everytime I do anything strenuous like walking up the stairs my legs burn like crazy and I am out of breath. I do not know why I am anemic, just that I don't eat alot of meat and I sometimes have pretty heavy periods, which may contribute. I do have alot of stomach pain, but I was diagnosed with chronic gastritis through an endoscopy a few years ago. I take 2 300 mg of Ferrous Gluconte a day. My lightheadedness has been going on since I started my periods, the rest of the symptoms (tiredness, breathless, etc.) have been happening for a few years--I just thought they were due to having my son (3 years ago). I go back to see my dr. on the 24th, so I will find out all the test results then.
Thanks for all/any of the help!:)
