    Red face Side effects from IM iron injections

    Hi all, my name is Lauren

    On Monday I was diagnosed with severe anemia through a blood test because I was having a lot of heart and breathing problems so they did some blood tests and found I have severe anemia

    So, I was told to take iron tablets but as I have had previous complications with then the Doc put me on iron injections straight away via intramuscular injection.

    This was all well and good until yesterday and today where the side effects have started to show up. I have pain all through my body and can barely move, I get hot flushes and then I'm freezing cold and also constipation and abdominal pain.

    These have lasted for 72 hours approximately now and just wondering if its meant to last this long, if its normal, or how long it will last as I'm due for another shot in 2 days

    Thanks in advance
