If your ferritin was fine, then he would have never put you on Iron 2wice a day. Regular docs, dont know everything. For example, My first doctor told me to go to a hematologist asap, he was correct!. But when I lost my insurance and had to go to a free clinic, this other dumb doctor, told me that my ferritin of 15 was fine back in Jan 2012. Now Ive dropped to an 8!!! and this new doc told me that 15 was too low and caused a lot of symptoms!!! and now my new number came back a 8, they are really worried. Ive had ER doctors tell me i was fine.... how am i fine, but the ideal number for ferritin is over 60?? You need to see a hematologist. YOu can die if you have no iron in your body at all, and that takes years. So by the time you get that low, the sypmtoms of anemia and lack of oxygen in your blood will start affecting other parts of your body... then it only gets worse from there, but that takes time.
