So the past few months and I mean about 4 months I have been feeling very dizzy, extremely fatigued and no energy, told my dr snd rheumy both responses ‘must be lupus’
Got my 2 weekly bloods done and my dr realises my haemaglobin has been dropping since August?!!! But has anyone bothered to tell me this NOPE or bothered to check my iron levels... NOPE!
I had an appointment at dermatology last month who have a procedure to do a full hormone blood test and iron...
Guess who calls me yesterday my gp saying I need to start iron tables ASAP as my levels are at 6 and the normal is 20..
I got sent home from work yesterday I was a mess I was just too tired to do anything and I just kept crying!
Anyways does lupus cause low iron? Will I have to take iron supplements for life?
