I can definately sympathize with you. You sound exactly like what I was going through just after my son was born. I would have dizzy spells, anxiety like attacks, confusion, lack of energy, out of breath just going from one room to another in my house, racing heart, cold all the time and trouble sleeping due to weird anxiety-like attacks that would keep waking me up. I had many, many tests done and finally I told the doc. to check my vitamins (due to tingling hands and feet). Came back my Ferritin was a 7 (supposedly wasn't anemic though). He put me on 300 mg of Ferrous Gluconate twice a day. I didn't start to feel better for about 7 or 8 months of being on the iron. I think I posted on this board a while back frustrated that after 6 months I still felt like crap....but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. After almost a year of being on iron I can say ALOT has improved. I no longer have the dizziness, anxiety attacks, confusion. I do still have days where I wake up and my energy level is close to none and the weird sleeping problems every once in a while. But I am happy I can actually enjoy my kids again instead of laying on the couch feeling like death!
Congrats on your baby. I wish you and your family all the best and hope you feel better soon.
