Hi!! I have had a series of awful symptoms for the past 2 years (fatigue, irritability, hair loss, dry skin, mental disorientation - I am in my early 30's). I finally got a doctor to take me serious, and not offer anti-depressants, and do blood tests.

She said that my ferritin is a 4, and that she's having the lab run some additional tests based on that. I will be talking to her tomorrow about the results, but I was wondering, what should I be asking about the ferritin results? My iron level was normal, BTW. I took iron supplemts last year for 2 months and didn't make me feel any better. I've read in this forum that the IV infusions work great, so I will ask about being referred to a specialist for that.

I just dont want to miss asking anything important since I probably wont talk to her again for a week or so.

Thanks!

Here are the other numbers - they all are listed as normal:

White Blood Cell Count 6.4
Red Blood Cell Count 4.41
Hemoglobin 11.9
Hematocrit 37.1
MCV 84
MCH 27.0
MCHC 32.1
RDW 14.4
Platelet Count 336
