Welcome to the boards! I'm still not 100% sure what type of anemia I have, I have endometriosis and have been having very heavy periods so that is the likely cause, although we have stopped the bleeding and started iron injections and the levels are sadly not coming back up. I'm not sure what my hemoglobin level is like compared to yours because I think I'm on a different scale (I'm in Canada) but my ferritin has been at 0 and my hemoglobin is very low. I've had a few doctors comment that they are shocked I'm still standing and I had one say he couldn't believe I wasn't dead (he didn't realize I could hear him) so I can sympathize a bit with how you might be feeling with the whole "incompatible with life" comment.

I hope you start feeling better soon and they get to the bottom of what's going on. How do you find day to day functioning? Are you pretty much at the point where you just sit around? I have found it hard to lose weight too...I gained about 7lbs or so when my iron plummetted, I don't know if it's because our bodies are trying to conserve everything maybe?
