    Iron Infusions 4 weeks ago & no relief yet

    I have most all the symptoms: numbness all over, fatigue, tightness in neck & jaw, trouble swallowing, ears feeling full, brain fog, etc.

    My question for those who have had infusions is how long before you began feeling better?

    Thanks.

    Re: Iron Infusions 4 weeks ago & no relief yet

    Anyone have tightnessin neck and jaw and trouble swallowing? Had infusions 4weeks ago anddoc thinks I shouldn't have these symptoms. Still tiredtoo. And he doesn't think my numbness is from low iron either. I'm scared, even tho the neurologist/ muscle doctor tests have come up negative,including Kris, etc. Anybody take a long time to recover after infusions?

    It takes 3 months to start making quality blood cells after getting your iron. Hang in there. Also, make sure they check your B12 levels and folic acid - those can give you numbness.

    Personally Iron Infusions were the worst thing I ever had done. An over load of "Synthetic Iron" can lead to the body not knowing how to process the iron. Often times resulting in Acute Hepatitis. This is exactly what happened to me. After three Iron Infusions I became very sick with nausea, vomiting, and uncontrolable pain (mostly over the liver). It's been over a year since my Infusions and I still deal with the symtoms of Hepatitis on a daily bases.

    It took me 4 months to stop being sick and to stop symptoms after having iron infusions 4 weeks straight every 8 to 12 weeks. The problem is that After the first 12 weeks th symptoms come back and I have start all over again and then getting an EPO shot.
