Now I'm anemic

I found out a couple weeks ago that I'm severely anemic and my vitamin d is low. My dr put me on 65mg of iron 2x daily and 50,000 units of vitamin d once a week. I have a pill phobia so this has been tough for me. I have suffered from panic and anxiety for over 4 yrs now. I'm wanting to believe anemia has been my problem all along but now I don't know. Im feeling almost worse since I've been on these supplements. Very anxious heavy head off balance feeling constantly. I'm also dealing with a cracked impacted wisdom tooth so maybe that's part of it too. I'm just so sick and tired of being sick and tired. Is anyone else going through my symptoms?? I'm trying to stay positive but it's hard when you don't feel well.

You should see improvement from the supplements however if you continue to have anxiety you will continue to feel lousy so you still need to work on your anxiety. I would say all your symptoms you are feeling since taking the pills is anxiety due to your fear of taking pills.

I also suffer the same symptoms as you it's horrible but we need to believe it will get better.

Good luck :)


Thanks this has been such a long road. I keep my faith in God. I know he has a bright future ahead for me.

Hi I have just been told the same I've got anaemic. I now trying out my iron tablets but my doctor said they can make you rough first two weeks so I. Also going to keep taking evening primrose oil as that helps the hormones adjust. What I've also found is as I don't like taking tsblets at the best of time is a stick called this works. It help me feel like I can breathe after feeling anxious and tense. You can get it online or in boots. Hope this is some help. Good luck.
