Hi, do many have iron deficient anaemia and RA? I requested my notes from my surgery and noticed that as far back as August a comment had been made on my ferritin levels(low), transferrin(hight)and transferrin saturation(low).My Hgb though has been normal. I was severely anaemic in April 09 and my GP decided it was to do with periods.(but they weren't particularly heavy).I have been having problems lately (last few months) with extreme fatigue, pins and needles, muscle twitching, chest tightness and aching thighs when walking uphill(or stairs), depression. My B12 level is 186 which my GP said is normal. I am now wondering if a lot of my symptoms could be caused by the low ferritin levels. Seeing a new GP monday so have a list of questions for him. I just want to feel better than I do now.
