Mac2--Welcome to the boards!!

You are not on near enough iron to replete your stores of 10 (which is borderline/no iron stores) whether you are anemic or not. Anemia is the final end stage of iron stores and you are very close. This may be a lot of your problem. There is only one way to find out and that is to replenish your stores and see if the symptoms self correct, if not, you will know to look elsewhere. It's a long hard road for some, so try to be patient.

I think that you will feel much better if you get more iron. I now take 150 mgs of elemental iron daily to replenish ferritin stores, was on 300mgs when anemic. You should ask for a script or find an iron that is higher and easy on the GI tract verses some harsh OTC irons that can make some people really sick.

It is so worth the oral iron therapy, I cannot express to you the difference in your "quality of life" if this is from low stores. I started feeling better and having energy but fatigue remained at a 20ish ferritin. Every time my ferritin raised, I felt even better.

Whenever you have low iron levels along with another underlying condition I think that this condition may become worse. Sometimes you have more than one thing going on and will only know why when you rule out the iron problems. Best of luck to you. Keep us posted. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
