Good morning.

I'm new to the board and new to everything that's happening to me.

I was told I was anemic in 2008 but never told what to do or how to take care of myself. I've been having heavy cycles for years but no symptoms of anemia til a few months ago. I spent countless hours in the emergency room and was told I was having anxiety attacks so I was put on Ativan and Paxil. I saw a nurse practitioner and she went thru my records discovering the anemia diognosis. She put me on 324 mgs of ferrous sulfate 2x per day. This was the end of November. I didn't know there were some things I couldn't eat or drink while taking the FS so absorption ? was limited. So now I'm taking the FS the right way. I feel OK right now but afternoons are rough. Dizziness, foggy, heart rate up. It's frightening but I'm trying to stay calm.

I just want to be normal again.
