I've been telling my dr. all summer that I think I'm anemic cause I'm so exhausted all the time and am dizzy a lot of the time. Finally took blood tests that showed hemoglobin of 7, said I'm severly anemic.
I've had colonscopy and endoscopy + tests for celiac and nothing was found to be responsible for the "unexplained, undetected bleeding" doctors were looking for.
Dr. put me on over the counter ferrous sulfate iron tablets + vitamin C. I go back to the gastroenlogist next week to have the capsule camera test which looks into the small intestine. Then see a hemotologist to get iron infusions.
This amenia has been debilitating! Have any of you gone through this or these procedures? I'm hoping for good results, particularly from the iron infusions. I'd appreciate any experiences or info you can share. Thanks in advance.
