Just got back from my first visit with hematologist. He said I have no iron in body at all.
My ferritin came back at 5. I am going to start Venofer next week, and quite frankly I am looking forward to it.
I am tired of being tired, and my hair is falling out like crazy.

I did forget to ask him one question which I am hoping someone on this board can answer.
Does low ferritin cause you to be cold all the time?

I hope you start to feel better with the Venofer! I have pain in my arms too! Weird, I never thought the 2 would be related!!
Just got done with my 5 infusions of venofer! Had no reaction at all.
My ferritin went from 5-152 in 5 weeks.
I started to get more ambition around the 3rd infusion, but I still get tired easily.
Hopefully now, my hair loss will lessen up.

For me this was the only route to go, as iron pills just constipate me, and over all make me feel lousy.
