Sounds like what I am going through. I was severely anemic last December. I ended up in the ER with really low hemoglobin levels and ferritin was undetectable! They got my levels back up with two infusions. Six months later, again, no ferritin but, technically not really anemic due to my hemoglobin being 11 (that's really good for me!). The doctor said that the ferritin drop just tells them that the hemoglobin drop will soon follow and then it can be even more serious. At that point I was really fatigued again but not having the heart palpatations I get with my anemia when it is bad. I had one infusion then and had a bad reaction. Fortunately my ferritin went up just enough that they didn't have to start my infusions again until last month. Again, ferritin was super low but hemoglobin not bad at all. I go in for more testing to see if this round of five Venofer treatments worked. I already know they did though because my mind feels much clearer and I've cut way down on the naps again.

Really, if your ferritin level is that low it's time for the infusions.
