so i had blood work done 6 months ago, my ferritin was 9 and then two months later had it re checked after taking iron supplements (325 mg 3x a day prescribed by doc) and my ferritin went DOWN to 6! i have been tired, fatigued, i have leg cramps off and on even though i stretch them and eat 2-3 bananas a day, eating lots of fiber to make up for that! but now my hair is falling out in CHUNKS! i wanted to cry today. it's so thin and i am using a biotin shampoo and conditioner now and taking biotin. i don't know what else to do for it. i take vitamins too. i take my iron with vitamin C 2 x a day. i also get nerve sensations in arms and legs at times, like pins and needles. my periods aren't that heavy. i know it can't be from that. i see my doc next week for another follow up which he will have me do another lab to see if my iron has gone up at all. i am worried. what comes next? test wise?
