    Just Diagnosed with Anemia

    I was just diagnosed with Anemia. I have been to the emergency room twice. The first time I went, my rbc was a 7. I had two blood transfusions. I had to go back to the emergency room because I felt like I could not breathe. I was given prescriptions. I just started taking Iron and am on iron pill #9. I was diagnosed with Iron Deficiency Anemia. I thought that since I am now taking iron pills I was going to see a big difference. I have stopped being cold. But, I still feel weak. How long does it take for me to start feeling the effects of the iron. How long will I still feel weak?

    i've been anemic for a couple years now.
    Take iron pills, everyday, just as they're directed, and you'll see a difference in a week or so.

    Atleast i did.

    Thanks for the assurance. So I guess being Anemic is something that will be with me for a while.

    Re: Just Diagnosed with Anemia

    Hi! i have just been diagnose with anaemia too although my rbc was a 3! i am only 13 years old too which makes it even harder as i am realy tired all of the time and would like to do sport like my other friends. however i never had to have a blood transfusion which has puzzled me as my rbc was lower then yours. I was diagnosed about 2 weeks ago now and the results came back that i had iron defficiency anaemia. They gave me iron tablets which i am still taking and also put me on the pill.Like you the tablets dont seem to be working much.! tk care
