iron infusion side effects

Has anyone had indigestion after an infusion? I received my infusion yesterday and am awaken early in the am by horrible stomach pain, so much I have to get out of bed to feel better?

Re: iron infusion side effects

I haven't had an iron infusion, but I've heard people here say they have joint pain and lower back pain.

I'd call the doctor and tell them. Maybe they can prescribe something for your stomach.

Re: iron infusion side effects

I had an infusion last week. I didn't so much have indigestion as stomach cramps. For me they didn't start until about 36 hours after the infusion, around the same time as a back ache and muscle weakness. Resolved about 24-36 hours after that. The headache on the other hand started immediately and took a few days to get any better.

If you're concerned, I'd call your MD.
