Last year when my iron was that low my doctor (a hematologist) wanted to admit me to the hospital immediately for a blood transfusion. I was afraid of a transfusion and they told me if I went home and remained on bed rest until they could get me set up with an IV iron treatment, they would concede but if I had rapid heart rate or breathing problems to proceed to an emergency room for the transfusion. I had the IV iron within a few days. I am now monitored every 2 or 3 months for iron levels and seem to need two IV iron treatments per year to keep my levels normal. I started another discussion thread because I am trying to figure out why I am so anemic. In your case, I think you should see another doctor immediately, probably a hematologist.
