Still blooming anaemic

Still blooming anaemic

Been to the drs this morning as i wasn't feeling very well. I hurt and my fingers are sore as well. I feel so blooming exhausted all the time and tired it is unbelievable. Well it turns out i am still anaemic.This makes sense of how i am feeling at the moment all the time. So more iron tablets for me fo another couple of months. I am wondering when it will end for me.... Feeling veey tired indeed.xxxxx

Hi Sylvi, I know just how you feel I've been on iron tablets for anaemia for the past 4 weeks, I also am very tired all the time, this is the 3rd time for me becoming anaemic in the last couple of years. Feel your pain.

Hugs

Just a thought - have you been screened for coeliac disease? I was anaemic for years and constantly taking iron tablets until my GP finally decided to screen me for coeliac disease. Once properly diagnosed and on the gluten free diet, I have had absolutely no problems with low iron, folate or B12 since. You do have to be eating a full gluten containing diet for the blood tests to be accurate though.

I had bariatric surgery last year for weight loss Earthwitch and this is more than likely the cause of it. I was told it was one of the side effects. I am seeing my dietician on Monday and we are going to discuss this.xxxxx

Sylvi.

So sorry all this has come to light.No wonder you are tired and fed up.

Do they know what's causing this anaemia,there has got to be a reason for it recurring so often? Iron tablets are ok but they have their own little side effects too from what I can remember of my experience with them.

I really hope you can get this licked pretty soon,and get back to your usual cheerful self.

Please take care.
