Got sick and lost iron...

Hi, I'm a 20 yr old female and I recently had a stomach virus (Or food poisoning)... Because of it, I didn't eat a lot and lost not only a lot of fluid but I guess a lot of iron.

I've been to the doctors a couple times because I was unsure of what to do. I had a little diarrhea, shaking limbs, cold hands and feet, fast heart beat, no appetite, and I lost almost 10 lbs... All of which basically scared the life out of me... (I've never vomited though) He told me that I was a little dehydrated and very low in iron. He perscribed me Repliva 21/7. (Also I've been drinking a lot of pedialyte...)

I'm on my third day of Repliva and feel a little better I suppose... However, I'm still extremely nervous. I get light-headed still and sometimes feel either too hot or too chilled. (Also I don't want to jynx it by saying I feel a little better)

Has anyone had something similar? Anyone used Repliva?

Re: Got sick and lost iron...

No, my anemia was caused from heavy periods, low diet in heme iron and PPI long term use and possibly Hashi's. It takes a while to feel better it is not a quick thing to happen. Hope you are feeling better soon. FLFLOWERGIRL
