ok so the hairs been falling out and i have bald patches i have chronic fatigue which is affecting my daily life, I'm pasty and depressed, my muscles ache and my joints are burning, i get tingles in my lower legs...... I am at at my wits end.....
Finally the doc agrees to run the iron test after speaking to him yesterday.....heres my results
Serum ferritin level 11 ug/L [11.0 - 307.0]
Note: New serum Ferritin assay from 21/01/15
- Ferritin results may be up to 35% lower.
So.......Borderline....no further action was the result....
i have been on supplements and after telling doctor i thought that my issues were down to iron deficiency he prescribed some other supplements.....(a different preparation)
How can they interpret this as 'borderline'.....?
how long will it take for these supplements to work? will my hair ever stop falling out? why hasn't the supplements worked so far? what is the point in taking supplements (been on them for 5 months) ????????
am i being fobbed off here or should i go back or should i quietly shut up and get on with it?
how bad does this have to get before someone listens? or is it that theres nothing else that can be done?
WHY isn't my system absorbing iron after 5 months??????????
Can anyone shed any light on this?????
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ANSWERS????? :-(((((
