I know how you feel. My HG is also right at the low end of normal and my ferritin is 6. I feel absolutely horrible and the idea of living with this chronic headache for any longer is more than I can bear. I mentioned an iron infusion to my DR and she looked at me like I had two heads. I'm in BC, BTW. She said they never do that unless the patient is hospitalized because of the potential for serious adverse reactions.
I tried ferrous gluconate pills but I became extremely constipated. So now I'm trying ferrous fumorate. I've heard some people can notice a difference within 5 days because the HG will go up even though it will take a long period to bring the ferritin levels back up. I'm only on day 3 and no change yet but I'm hopeful.
I'm going for a colonoscopy/endoscopy next week and am going to talk to the specialist about my anemia. Will let you know what he has to say.
