Hi PlasticPetals,

Sorry to hear about your pains. From what I have been reading, it is a constant struggle with anemia but a lot of people do get better over time. I find I trade aches and pains on a daily level - sometimes my face and/or lower leg will feel a bit numb (a feeling rather than on touch), recently my left thumb and big toe hurt at the joints. I feel exhausted on a daily basis which never really changes. Dr will do a blood test after 3 months to see if my levels have risen (fingers crossed). I have seen a couple of different drs to get a broader picture and so far the drs think my symptoms are in line with iron deficiency anemia.

At Some points I feel a bit better during the day (definately not first thing in the morning;)) and then by early evening its crash time! I am still able to work my two part time jobs - care work and cleaning, I have had to push myself but I don't get paid if I go off sick. I find if I go for a walk with my kids its the next day when I really feel the pain and fatigue. Anemia to me is like a creeping ivy, I didn't notice its full effects and then it grabs and takes hold.

Hope everyone is doing ok, there are great people on here x
