    Cool Low Ferratin,Low Normal Hemoglobin

    Hi,

    Bloodwork:
    B12: 520
    Hemoglobin: 11.7
    Ferritin: 3
    RBC:3.74
    Hematocrit: 34.8

    I have been complaining of the following symptoms (see below please) for over a year and they are getting progressively worse! My first visit was for shortness of breath, heart palps, lower leg pain/weakness and heart pounding and swooshing in ears; then my second visit was for dizziness (she gave me Meclizine I didn't take) and went in yesterday for extreme fatigue and weakness. I am jumping out of my skin exhausted and not meeting my daily commitments (in the last 2 weeks). My doctor INSISTS that my levels are normal and wouldn't cause any symptoms and thinks it's just stress. Note: I have normal levels of stress and am not having panic attacks! I'm very frustrated because she is treating me like a hypochondriac!

    From researching, "I" have found that my ferritin levels are extremely low and there can be several contributing factors. Including; Celiac (which I have the marker for HLA-DQA), Thyroid (she tested TSH=1.18 normal), heavy periods (which I have), ANA (normal), C-reactive (normal), CBC (normal), Mono (negative), cardiologist (normal), EKG (normal), chest xray (normal).

    Symptoms:
    -shortness of breath
    -low stamina/weak/tired
    -dizzy spells
    -achey/tingling/restless legs
    -cold toes that appear to have bluish tint
    -heart palpitations
    -occasional chest pains (normal w/cardio doc)
    -heart pounding and swooshing in ears
    -headache (more often than not)
    -horrible concentration

    I have been taking Floridix with herbs for a couple days and extra B12. I am hopeful to have some improvement with my self diagnosis and treatment so frustrating!

    Any experiences or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
    Happy Holidays!
