Low iron

Hi, im new to this so be patient. I have been told my iron level is 7.6 and been referred for an 'urgent'' hospital appointment. I have nothing obvious that is causing this. I also have very sore joints. How low can iron levels be allowed to go before intervention? Does anybody know what i can expect when i go to hospital appointment? I have a terrible needle phobia into the bargain so happy days ( I am 43yrs old) Any info greatly appreciated Thanks

Re: Low iron

did they find what's causing the severe iron? Do you have heavy periods? Is your blood levels low? I was diagnosed w/ anemia a few yrs ago....and the levels went up ...but marginally ..and recently again ...anemic....i had uterine fibroids, which that beleive were the culprits...(heavy periods). Do u have heavy periods? If not, they may ask to do an endo/colonoscopy?
