Re: Anemia Insomnia
Nov 15, 2010
[QUOTE=helenec;4613584]elaina 08,

I too have been struggling with exactly the same thing. I was diagnosed with anemia 10 days ago, after struggling with the symptoms and not knowing what was wrong with me for over 2 years. Every health professional that I went to said I was suffering from anxiety/panic disorder. As of about 5 months ago, my insomnia became so bad that I would cry myself to sleep from fear and exhaustion. Only to get maybe an hour or two at the most of intermittent sleep. My heart would race, pound, flutter and my palpitations scared the life out of me. They were around the clock, but it was so much worse at night. Finally a new doctor checked my blood work and my ferritin levels were 10. I am on 3 divided doses of ferrous sulphate and eating every iron rich food in sight. My symptoms are better, but the insomnia is still a battleground. I wish I had some advice for you, but wanted to let you know that you are not alone... hopefully somebody out there can give us some help. Good luck to you and your struggles, positive thinking your way!

My ferritin is 13, iron saturation 18%, RBC 3.7......but my doctor is saying everything is fine. I too am unable to sleep.....I am exhausted every morning, it takes hours for me to finally get motivated to anything.
