My ferritin was 52, then after two months of ferrous gluconate it went up to 53. My gp then prescribed a liquid form called sytron (haven't seen it mentioned on here) and after 3 months my ferritin is now 131 😀
However...no effect on my legs, although my arms feel better. Can it take a while for the brain to respond? (Ever the optimist!) Otherwise gabapentin 3x daily it is.
Next stop spinal clinic to see if compresdion fracture/degenerative disc disease might be contributing (showed on mri)
