Talking Ferritin level


This is my first post. I would like to hear from women with CFS. Please let me know what your ferritin level is. I just discovered mine is quite low at 11, which coincides with my worst relapse ever. There are those that believe that low ferritin causes fatigue and lots of other symptoms even if there is no anemia. I'm eagerly waiting to hear from you!

Re: Ferritin level

mmm.. I think you're on the wrong track. My Ferritin levels are extremely high and I have been sufering CFS for at least 20 years

Finally some relief this year from a combination of Methotrexate / Arava / Prednisone / FolicAcid / Meloxicam yay!!

Re: Ferritin level


Thank you for your reply! Did you notice an improvement in your fatigue after your ferritin was raised?
