Hi,

I am 25 years old and have had ME and Fibromyalgia since October 2006 as a result of a car accident. I also suffer from severe headaches and asthma.

However for many years I have sufferred with stomach problems and in July 2009 it became a big problem. After numerous tests I was diagnosed in Feb 2010 that I havve coeliac disease.

My iron has been low and I have been on iron supplements since October 2009. I was told on Thursday my iron is continuing to drop and is now at 7. I was also told my Vitamin D is low at 14.8 - don't know what this means.

I have to ring through to the hospital tomorrow to speak about an iron transfusion. My HB is 12 something but again this is a decrease - the week before it was about 13.5

I use to be afraid of injections and needles but I'm having blood work done all the time lately. I have no energey, sores in the corner of my lips which just won't go. My normally perfect clear skin is breaking out in sores and I feel dreadful. I have no energy, keep feeling light headed and am fed up of people telling me I look like death.

Does anyone have siilar iron issuees etc????

Thanks in advance,

Hello.
I had similar problems and the iron, infed infusion really helped me.
I had that in 2006 and have not been anemic since.
I felt like 'super women' days after.lol.
good luck.;)
