Low iron stores but not anemic
i was suffering so many different things:
headache, dizziness, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, loss of appetite, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, feeling cold, just overall feeling of being ill. went to the eye doctor, neurologist, cardiologist, and did testing and all came back good. I suffered all these symptoms for three months each and every day. I decided to look at my bloodwork and realized I am iron deficient. my iron levels were borderline, extremely low, and ferritin borderline low. I probably became anemic in those three months of suffering for all I know. I started to take iron and began to feel better. now I'm on iron therapy. been on it for 2 months all symptoms have subsided except I still feel a bit lightheaded. please tell me that the lightheadedness will subside as well this process is so long ...
@yuvanya it took a few months for me to feel "normal" again. the improvements were gradual over time. I would say maybe around the 2-3 month mark is when I really started to feel better
