I have been feeling pretty sick for the last month. Finally got up the courage to drag myself to the Dr. I was having panic attacks, anxiety, dizzy, not eating, no energy.
He put me on some antidepressants and did the routine blood work. Called me back down yesterday and told me I had anemia took me off the anti depressants. Yay me right? I am not insured till August so we are just milling over the things that could be causing this and he mentioned the heavy periods and maybe having Fibroids but obviously we can't confirm any of this till August.
I don't have any of my numbers because I'm a worry wart and Google has been my worst enemy this last few days. I have had the worst stress, panic and anxiety and I'm sure I'm just making myself feel worse.
He put me on Integra 125 mg 2x a day, and I took my first pill last night. I ended up sleeping longer then normal due to a severe case of insomnia this has all caused me and my staying up to late so I didn't take my pill as prescribed already and I'm really upset with myself. I just want to feel better.
The thought of food makes me sick. I have been forcing myself to eat, is this normal? I have an upset stomach and a heavy chest feeling as well, again have any of you experienced those symptoms? Also was wondering for anyone who does take iron is it normal for it to make you sick the next day?
I just don't know what to do with all this. I guess when your sick it always makes you feel better knowing there are other people out there going through exactly what you are.
I just want to feel better mentally and physically, my body is just so weak and all I want to do is lay in my bed.

Edited to add taking the pill alone gives me anxiety, I'm so scared I'm going to OD on Iron. Someone take the Google away from me!
