I've been dealing with various levels of ID since I was 12 years old. I have been on ferrous gluconate for years to deal with it. In spring 2011 my iron level was at a four fo my doc put me on FerraMax, easier to absorb, when I went back 2 months later my levels dropped to 2. She referred me to a hematologist and changed my oral iron Proferrin, supposedly the best oral iron there is. I got into a special combination clinic held at the Women's Health Centre here, where I am now seeing a Hematologist and Gynocologist at the same time. The hematologist has put me on Venofer treatment once every two weeks, while the gyn is having me get every type of ultrasound available and has put me on cyclokapron during my period to try to control the bleeding. I have had 4 iron infusions and although my iron and hemaglobin levels are up, my symptoms aren't getting any better:mad:. I'm still exhausted and freezing all the time, I keep getting sharp pain in the upper left abdomin, always nauseous, no appetite, headahces, ect. Shouldn't my symptoms be alleviated somewhat by now?

I was diagnosed as borderline hypothyroid about 5 months ago and have been taking synthroid ever since. I was also hospitalized 2 years ago with acute cholesystitis and had to have my gallbladder removed. I was 29, not over weight, low-fat diet and had been experiencing episodes since the age of 12.

Should I be pushing for a different diagnosis? Something is obviously wrong. Any ideas?
