Acute anemia
Sep 18, 2011
Hi guy's hope yoU can help me....

I went to the doctors last Monday for a routine blood test due to a med i'm using and it came back really bad..

My blood count last Monday was 6.4 hb, I am very out of breath and extremely tired. I was called for a second blood test on Wednesday, but the dr abandoned the test and admitted me to hospital for transfusions, while there my blood pressure went really high and my resting pulse rate sat at 110, my blood count had dropped again to 6.2 it was decided by the consultant to try iron supplements as blood transfusion was to invasive and staying in hospital was making me worse... I was given ferrous fumarate 210mg to be taken 3 times daily with vitamin c, however I can not tolerate iron supplements and was violently sick after the first tablet, this has been a lifetime thing I have never been able to take iron tablets. The tablets were stopped and I have been prescribed ironorm drops 2mls x 3 daily, I can only tolerate 1ml at the time so I'm taking half doses at the minute...... I am eating liver, mussels and broccoli every day along with vitamin c supplements, is there anything more I can do... I think my counts are still falling as I feel really out of breath and my ankles are swollen worse then ever, any help would be appreciated ..... Thank you guys, sorry if the post is badly written, but I'm not seeing the screen clearly
