Hi I'm new to this site - sorry to be so long winded in my question(s) but several years ago I was unwell as I was severly anemic which caused a lot of other health problems. Every time I had a blood test it always came out borderline hypothyroid too but GP never gave me anything only iron tabs which caused me to have pain in the kidney area. Anyway lately I.have been feeling rough again - always tired, hair falling out, insomnia, no sex drive, carpel tunnel, mind fog etc so I went and got a blood test done and as I suspected results were iron deficiency and borderline hypo again. I see the GP this Friday about my results, in the meantime thought I'd try boosting my iron up by taking a low dose (25mg) liquid iron, but it's causing my kidneys to start hurting again. I've tried googling for info on this but haven't found anything yet, has anyone else found the same?
Also as I've been borderline Hypo so many times now and I have the symtoms do you think the GP would consider giving me a low dose of medication to see if it will sort these symtoms out?
Thanks in advance
