Hi everyone. I have been so so sick. My dr even admitted me to the hospital for a week thinking I had MS. But everything came out ok. I do have hashimotos which I'm on meds for. My iron % saturation and ferritin were both low. My rbc goes from barely low to normal but my dr said it's just due to menstruating.

I am dizzy, low resting heart rate but shoots up high (120-150) even just walking around the house. Full cardiac workup..heart is ok.

Exhausted...can. Barely stay awake or function.

Headaches, severe sensitivity to light and sound as well as head pressure.

Always cold, thought it was thyroid.

Muscle twitches. Toes, legs, eyelids, temple.

Anxiety, seems to worsen as I'm tired

Can low ferritin and % saturation cause this?

I bought some solgar gentlemiron. It's 25 mg I think. My friend says she takes 5 a day for anemia but that seems high. any advice on how much to take?

My ferritin was 11 and % saturation was 13 and iron was 49.

Thanks so much!!
Definitly anemia... I am anemic and I have these symptoms. My iron is low so I need to take iron supplement... It takes at least 6 weeks for my case to make it return back to normal. You should talk to your doctor about it and so your anxiety.. Trust me, it will help you a lot if you let it all out : emotions, fears, etc... Your anxiety will not help! So take a little break and take some times to breath, very important ! I have anxiety problems, but I need to learn how to control them. You were admitted, so if you feel like something is wrong, go talk to a doctor fast. The faster, the better.

My ferritin is a 4 and I feel awful!!!! Anemia for sure. :(
I was diagnosed with anemia on Feb. 17, 2014. I have been faithfully taking Solgar Gentle Iron 25mg since. I've had crazy symptoms. The only way I deal with them is to read about other people with low iron who have the same symptoms. I'm feeling much better, but I still have a ways to go before I'm 100%. I've just started taking two iron pills a day to see if that makes a difference. I can't get levels checked again until May. Hopefully, my ectopic heartbeats subside or quit when I'm back to normal.

How is that iron working for you? I take nature made. It had 65 mg and I get tummy aches and diarrhea :( I think I would rather be constipated. My ferritin is a 7 :( I feel HORRIBLE!!!!

I take the Solgar Gentle Iron and I take 4 a day. You cannot compare the elemental iron in the Solgar Gentle to the Rx Iron from your dr because its a different kind of iron.
