Hi , ok so I did actually get the appointment last week to see the dr, i mentioned could my ferritin levels be low? I explained the whole RLS factor ,how ill i have been feeling and still am feeling, and the Dr said well ok we will do a test ,so I said I want the actual number my ferritin is at . I had the bloods done Friday last ,results were rang to me Monday ,the receptionist just said yes a very low score and you're anaemic,so there is a prescription for 3x a day iron tabs. . So I went to see my Dr today , and omg....low is actually an understatement. ..my ferritin level is 6! The Dr was quite astonished too , so, now I am to take the pills but also have begun juicing veg/fruit to help absorb the iron . He said to rest (which I didn't need telling as my body is not coping at all atm ,dizxyness ,sickness ,fatigue etc. the sickly feeling is the worst bit right now.
So , i wasn't expecting it to be that low ,but now at least I know what to do about it,by he did warn me it would take a while ! .
