    Cure worse than problem!

    I've been dealing with anemia since February and since March I've been taking iron pills (28 mg then 60 mg then 28 mg again.)

    I went back to the Dr. for an update last week. They did a blood test and recommended I take 45 mg twice a day as well as a stool softener. Also they recommended "slow release" iron b/c I was concerned about the side effects.

    Since upping the iron dosage, my symptoms have gotten worse (loss of sensation in my face, dizziness) as well as dealing with side effects (queasiness, nausea, general pain). Also my back pain has come back. Is anyone else dealing with this? Does it get better?

    Did they test you to see if you absorbing the the right amount of iron or throwing it off? Have you been eating food with heme iron and non heme iron. Beets are good non heme. The best is chicken livers. I cook my up with a little Red Mill glutin free flower and coconut oil. The doctors say I shouldn't eat them all the time but I feel better when I do.
