Why did I feel better

On spatone when it was doing nothing for my ferritin levels. I had energy and felt mentally better I swapped to a different iron last week a bam I'm having an episode of feeling like I did before diagnosis. I feel so fatigued and I ache I have heaviness behind my eyes im irritated easily just generally because I feel like rubbish which leads too feeling depressed again and detached I just want too sleep 😢 Sorry for my not cheery posts but my hubby doesn't understand that when I'm super very tired my patience is in short supply. How could something that wasn't working deep down too improve things have such a good effect.

Couldn't see a doc other day as couldn't get too surgery I felt too dizzy too drive or walk so I plan too get appointment Tuesday

I need too be feeling better I see my mil soon nd I struggle with that situation even when I feel cheery help

Theres something funny about ferritin levels,..... I think when you start taking iron, the ferritn levels can even drop though i cannot remember why.....

If the spatone is making you feel a bit better, why not carry on with it? How long have you trialed it for? 6 months would be a reasonable length of time imo.

Nettiboo, I wouldn't continue taking something which made me feel so much worse. Perhaps you could take more Spatone than you were previously taking and cook with the Cambodian iron fish to raise ferritin levels slowly and steadily.
