I am exhausted all the time. Work full time, unable to do anything fun in the evenings/weekends as I just need to rest. Four months ago my ferritin level was 8ug/L (serum B12 was 219 ug/L and folate was 4.9 ug/L) I was prescribed 750mg per day of ferrous fumerate.
Three months later I've just had my blood retested and the levels are now ferritin 31 ug/L, B12 at 224 ug/L and folate 6.2 ug/L.
I am still feeling just as tired all the time. My GP says now all of the above are within normal range and I should continue with the iron supplements and expect further long term improvements.
Is there anything else I should be doing now? I have been reading around this and feel all these levels are still quite low and could be causing my tiredness (I am also having problems concentrating and pins and needles in my hands - could this be linked?) Hoping someone who knows about these things could offer advice. My GPs seem totally uninterested.
