I was recieving iron shots weekly for a while because Dr. said even though my iron looked normal to borderline anemic on the tests that my iron saturation was only 3 percent. (I think normal is 22 percent - not certain). I'm wondering if anyone else has had iron saturation this low and how were you feeling? Has anyone received iron shots? My new doctor says my iron is fine but I'm feeling like I did before my old doctor started giving me the iron injections so want to hear how any of you felt and compare with how I'm feeling. Thanks.
