i took my 3 year old daughter to the docotr twice over the last week and a half. she is always complaining of headaches, body aches, she is always tired and i have never seen anyone so pale. shes ghostly white. shes been on iron and recently finished her last bottle. the only tests the doctors have done is a cbc. i know something is not right. she easliy tires and is so irritiable. i know she is anemic but i think there is more to it than just that. she says shes hungry all the time and i fix her something to eat and she hardly eats at all then says shes full. what should i do? the last time i knew something was wrong with her i was right. i took her to see 4 different doctors before someone finally ran test and diagnosed her.

  • Low iron is often seen in juvinile arthritis. It doesn't always present itself as you would think and many parents are told that their child has growing pains. It is worth having it looked into, even tho it can be hard to diagnose. Kiera

  • What was she diagnosed with last time? Could she have worms? Sounds horrible but is it common where you live?
