Re: Aching legs

Yes, that is my main symptom. My legs always feel weak when I walk and ache. I am thinking it is from the low ferritin I have and anemia. I hate it though because it makes you feel exhausted. Do your legs feel weak too?

Hi. I'm a bit late on this board, but I wanted to say that when I started taking an iron supplement (Floradix), I had my Ferritin at 3, then 9, then 29, and now it's 87. I got to 87 in a matter of 6-7 months nearly.

BUT my legs/calves are still aching. Not so much as before, but it's still a disturbing symptom, and I'm starting to doubt whether my tired legs had to do with anemia only. By the way, my anemia went away in a couple of months, it was only Ferritin that was still low, but I don't think that now, with ferritin at 87 I should have low-iron symptoms (like sleepiness, too).

Has anyone noticed whether your legs get more tired in summer, when the weather is hot? (or, winter for Aussies)
