Hi everyone,

I posted a few months back when I was diagnosed with low ferritin at a 10. I suffer dizziness and balance problems, foggy head, tiredness etc

I have been taking iron pills since then and have been retested and came out at 22.

My doctor says it is a satisfactory result. I still do not feel any better, still really tired, still dizzy, still with balance problems. I know one lady on here said she started to feel better when she hit 29, but at what point did anyone else feel better i.e. less dizziness. I can cope with the tiredness and the foggy head but the dizziness and balance problems I can do without!

I have not spoken to my doctor, I got the results over the phone, but I am not sure whether he thinks that I am now normal and require no further treatment or if he thinks that this is satisfactory progress. In any way I will continue with taking the iron pills as I want to be much higher than this.

Thanks ladies.
