I haven't had any leg cramping recently and I am currently anemic and scheduled for an iron IV next week (ferritin at 4.9 and WBC at 4.1 which is normal but on the low side of normal). I also have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome so it is sometimes difficult for me to differentiate between the FMS and the anemia symptoms.
JJ1--I hear what your saying, that's just not right. I can see a PCP but not telling a Hema doc they SHOULD know that! That was one of the first things that they checked on me but back then I had no idea why, now I know all too well.

I have a friend that was told she was anemic and sent home to take iron with no other tests. I was already anemic at that time and I sent her back for further tests (to ask the doc for) she ended up having a B-12 under 200. She had PA and IDA at the same time with a Ferritin (another test to ask for) of 6. Then she had to fight to see a Hematologist. You really do have to get a quick education on your healthcare situation. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
