Alcohol and Anemia
The other day (Sunday) I did something stupid and had a few beers (about 2 pints). Yesterday and today I noticed my symptoms have gotten a bit worse. Does alcohol make anemia symptoms worse?

Re: Alcohol and Anemia
The only thing I have read about this is that when you drink your body depletes iron supplies from your organs to help counter act the "alcohol poison" in your system. So for me, when I am drinking I actually feel OK because there is a boost of iron so to speak but the next day I am very ill and in the long run I am betting that it makes our condition worse. I do not drink at all now.
