Newbie Inroduction- Anemic and Confused
Hello, I'm glad I found this site. I was diagnosed with Anemia at 15 but it wasn't until 5 months ago that things got really bad.
I was sleeping for 12-15 hours, nauseous, craved ice cubes, headaches and all. I went to my doctor, he casually suggested blood work and I said definitely. A few days later he called and just said "Your severely Anemic". I was shocked but glad to know what was wrong. He suggested Iron vitamins and that was it.
I went to a good vitamin store and stocked up on Hema-Plex, Vit. C,D, B complex and Amino Acids.
The problem is that things have slightly improved but the nausea is still present. I don't crave any food, I'm nauseous all the time and I can barely function.
The doctor said I may need an Iron Infusion but I have no insurance.
Just stuck and not sure what to do. I may ask for a referral to a Hematologist.
