I just found out that I have ferritin level of 4, only slightly anemic (not terribly) which I guess is why I am only mildly miserable compared to some others. I am short of breath and do have arythmias, which I now attribute to this. Just started the ferrous sulfate five days ago and feel some better already and so far tolerating it.

Question: I have a long ago planned trip to Greece in 10 days. Any reason I shouldn't go that you experts would think of? My doctor doesn't mention anything, like don't exercise (she knows I exercise almost daily, or take on an empty stomach with vitamin C, etc.). While I am fatigued, I think I have the energy to make the trip, but I am wondering if there are health safety issues I am not aware of.

Hi there :wave:

I am not sure if there are any health issues? it may even do you good to have a rest/change etc

but what did cross my mind is make sure the anaemia doesnt invalidate any insurance if you need it??

I am sure others will post to help more :)

Hope you feel better soon and have a fab time in greece x
