In April 2015 I was diagnosed with iron defficent anaemia haemoglobin was about 63 and ferritin 1. I received a blood transfusion and felt so much worse. I have had leg aches, fatigue,headaches ever since and short of breath. But over the past 5 months I've been getting steadily worse.
I am now feeling shakey, cannot think straight, have memory loss, dizziness, ridges on my nails, shooting pains in my arms and legs, RLS and am now really struggling with even getting out of bed. It feels like ive got a hangover every day.I've been seeing a haemotoligest and neurologist and they both say everything is fine? My Haemoglobin is now 167 and ferritin 29 and the Dr's say I am now not anaemic.
After discovering this website and checking my symptoms with b12 defficency I checked back at my blood results. The only b12 test result that I can see was taken before my transfusion and the serum b12 was 191 which I recently pointed out to my gp. My gp states that it was within in range so there was no need to retest. This b12 test was 10 months ago and the gp said they could retest but I can't get a blood test carried out for another 10 days. I am really concerned as the last test was 10 months ago and after reading up about b12, I am worried about any long term damage. Any help would be appreciated.
