After months of feeling like hell on toast and getting nowhere with GP, the rheumy has come to the rescue and is prescribing some iron infusions as I've been on tablets for 2 1/2 years with little change. I'm always anaemic. He said it's a start, but it sounds like he's got some other thoughts as well so we'll see.
I've also managed to get scheduled to see rheumy at a clinic he holds in the nearby area, saving me having to drive over an hour and a half. IF that doesn't work, phonecalls have been agreed for really crap days, and he will run through symptoms and adjust prescriptions or prescribe new stuff as needed.
So semi-yay, but I've never had infusions before. How long are they, and how long before results? Are they usually a one-off, or is it something I may have to keep doing (seriously, I'm constantly anaemic, tablets just don't work it seems).?
Cheers in advance.
