    Is anyone else finding themselves REALLY irritable--or am I just crazy?

    I don't know what's wrong with me...I am finding myself getting really upset about things that definitely should not bother me this much. Is this happening to anyone else? I go see a hemotologist on Monday. I'm hoping he can help me.

    I can't speak for others,but when my levels drop,crankiness is a definite show up.My guess is due to how we feel,it's a feasible mental reaction.

    You guys are great. I don't understand what's going on. I went to the hematologist...I've been talking twice the recommended daily dosage of iron every day for a month. My levels haven't improved at all. The hematologist acted like it was good that they hadn't gotten worse. I feel horrible! I've been throwing up a lot, feeling dizzy, been really cranky and upset. He apparently is now going to test my blood for my B12 and folic acid levels. He doesn't seem concerned at all and said I should come back and see him in 3 months. THREE MONTHS?!!! I can't go on like this for another 3 months. He also said because of me throwing up, maybe I should go see a neurologist to see if it is an atypical migraine. WHAT?

    Hiya,

    I've been getting b12 injections recently as they found my levels were low and I was sooooo cranky! I wasn't allowed to send emails in work because of how angry I came across and everything anyone did really really annoyed me. I even started anger management but the patronising teacher annoyed me too much! I'm still feeling tired and probably angrier than most but I have to say I'm such a lot better than I was, I no longer want to kick everything that moves! With any luck if they find low b12 they can give you some injections to help......but don't expect too much too quickly, they seem to take longer to work than I expected.

    Thanks! I am so frustrated. I went to the hematologist after a month of taking double the dose of recommended iron, and my iron hadn't improved at all, but he seemed to just think it was a good thing that it hadn't gone down and was like, "see ya in a few months!" In the meantime, he did check my B12 and folic acid, but they were normal. I throw up, have stomach problems, and am still dizzy and feeling like crap.

    If you are feeling irritable then it can be the result of any emotional disturbance or any other tension in your life. So better to look into yourself first.

    I know I am beyond irritated at pretty much everyone when my levels are low. I can't drive anywhere without swearing like a sailor at the other drivers!

    Do you take your iron with Vitamin C or orange juice? I heard that helps.
