Yes, I have had pain after each of my IV iron infusions and I have had too many to count. I do not know which IV iron preparation you received but I have had all of them and I had pain with all of them too.

My pain would be described as the type of body aches and pain you get with the flu. In fact, I feel like I have the flu after each infusion for several days. I also experience deep bone pain. I think the deep bone pain is the bone marrow being activated to kick up red blood cell production since iron is now available. All of these side effects are listed on the side effect profiles included with the IV iron infusions.

I try to take it easy after my IV iron for several days. I sleep, drink lots of liquids, eat easy to digest foods, take pain relievers and use a heating pad. Pamper yourself. These infusions are very hard on my system but I know I need them.

Take care. Hope you are feeling better.

Thanks for sharing as it is my 3rd day & another really rough night-not just flu like feelings but the deep bone leg & hip pain & up each hour all night. I took stronger pain pill by daybreak. I am learning & your site is helpful as I am not making any red cells in my marrow & this is the first iron infusion. I have nad the infusions for immune system & was hospitalized BUT with this small amount of iron infusions hope I can continue-no choice! What else has helped you?
I went on the Board last night & goofed up my "thread"-I am learning! Any suggestions most appreciated!
hello all, this is my first time posting here.. i have been having iv iron infusions since 1996, they are so hard on my body that i refused to go as much as they want me to which is once a week, they are lucky they get me there once a month... i also suffer from the many side effects that all are talking about, the most painful one is the one i get about 24 hours after the infusion and that is the pain the starts at the nape of my neck adn goes half way down my back, it feels like i was beating by a bat for hours... then i also get a sore throat and a fever 2 days after.. if anyone else has experienced this please let me know.. im at the end of my rope right now! thank you!
