I have been having extreme body aches and joint pain for the past 6 weeks on a daily basis. I had blood tests done (thyroid, ferritin, b12, etc) and everything was in the normal range. My doctor said that my ferritin was 34ug/L and it's on the "low normal" end and recommended an iron supplement.
Can my iron level really be giving me so much pain? It's affecting my ability to function and I am taking pain meds every day without much relief.
