So I have been anemic for some time, in fact my ferratin level is 2.6 and I was finally referred to a hemotologist. I had no idea what to expect, and when I went in, they told me I needed the iron infusion. I was really scared after they told me all the risks, but I went through with it. They said I would need at least 3 more, then have the labs drawn again. Here are a couple of question I would really like to know if you can help me! 1- They said there was a chance of having a major allergic reaction, when they did the test dose, I was fine, but after they were all done I had some itching on my it possible to be fine for the whole dose then have a reaction? Or was it just my nerves that got the best of me?? 2- I feel more tired the last two days then I have for a while =/ They said it would take me more then one dose to feel better, but is it normal to feel more tired?? I didn't have time to research this, and I'm wondering if having the IV is the best decision? Any help you could give me would be very appreciated!! :) Thanks
