I've been self injecting for a while - I'm experimenting, and I'm on a couple of times a week at the moment, which seems to keep my lightheadedness, anxiety and eye twitching at bay! I'm also taking folate and a multivitamin with iron.
However, I'm really tired, constantly cold and I keep finding bruises when I've no recollection of bumping myself. My hair is coming out in handfuls. I'm wondering if my ferritin is too low. In July 16, it was 14, and I took 3 months of iron supplements. My GP checked it in November and it was 39, which he said was OK (range is 20-291). A Gastro re-checked a week later and it was 32. I know I'm within range, but do these sound like anaemia symptoms to you? Incidentally, the gasto said my vit D was low at 30 (range 51+) but that a multivit would be enough to supplement).
Thanks for your thoughts x
