Hi I just been recently told by my Doctor I'am iron deficient but without Anaemia. My ferritin level was 9 u/gl my symptoms before this and still are light headeness, fuzzy head, extreme tiredness, headaches. (I have heavy mentraul cycles) I have been put on iron tablets 4 weeks ago and I can see a slight improvement but my symptoms still persist not fully gone away. I had a re test of my ferritin and it's gone from 9 to 22 u/gl in 4 weeks , which is good I think? But is that enough for me to be feeling still all the symptoms is there a certain level of ferritin I should have and feel very much better? I just want to know is it normal that I'm still feeling symptoms even though it's slowly risen my ferritin levels?
Thanks for checking my post out
