Doctors think you don't get symptoms until you are moderately anemic. I had a ferritin of 5 and a HGB of 11.7 and my doctor said it wasn't an "excuse" for my fatigue. That is so not true.

I think you can feel fairly bad with a ferritin of 12.
on the other hand my ferrtin was 2 and hemeglobin of 8.5 and i felt fine so it depends on the person dont ever let a dr tell you how you feel
I had this same thing happen 2 Ferritin and 8.5 Hgb and felt fine until I bottomed out one day. Your tolerance to anemia is proportional to the rate of development. If it is a rapid onset anemia the symptoms are more profound than slowly developing like in my case. So I don't quite understand why the way up is so terrible with a much higher iron level than my body is even use to. You would think I/we would feel great. I really don't get it or know what I truly believe about the ferritin symptoms that many of us have. And....your right many doctors say it's not the ferritin. Who and what do you believe? My symptoms keep improving along with the ferritin rising. This I know for sure! FLFLOWERGIRL:)
