Low hemoglobin level ... low general health
 
I am 50 year old female w history of chronic anemia due to malabsorption from gastric bypass surgery in 2005. I just got tested last Friday my level is,7.5..I have sever case of tmj from crunching so much ice, severe headaches and er doc started me on prescription iron 325mg pills 2xday which KILL my small tummy...any suggestions, thoughts, inputs on what I can do? I'm eating iron rich, vitamins etc but generally feel awful, weepy, very tired and pale..I'm a normally healthy, glowing southern gal who needs some help!!

b12 deficiency can be a problem after gastric bypass and can lead to anemia. I would ask your doctor if supplementing b12 orally or by injection might be helpful for you.

You didn't say what your iron levels are. Wonder if you can get iron transfusion instead - no tummy involvement.
