    Smile Iron deficient Anemia

    Hi there, I'm new to the board and I'm hoping someone can give me some advice and insight into the condition.

    My history, i stopped smoking in Dec15, started to exercise and get fit and felt gerat. In April had some pain in my shoulder from calcification tendinitous, so went to the doctors to get some anti inflamatories and they sent me off the next week for blood tests. Results came back as Anemic with Iron Deficiency, i was told my level was at 6 and should be in the range of 20 and gave me some iron tablets. Been on these for 7 days now and feel awful !!! Dizzy, tingling, heart racing..

    can someone tell me if that seems normal as i had no symptoms or tiredness before i went and got bloods done, so I'm confused? ?

    Hi, I am sorry the iron is not agreeing with you. You should not be going through that! Call your Dr, there are other forms of iron you could try. There is a liquid form you can order on internet called Floridix, (I am not sure if I spelled that correctly) that is easy on most people's systems. You shouldn't have to be so uncomfortable!
