I was diagnosed with iron defic. anemia in sept. ferritin 2%, hct 20.(gi upper,lower and capsule of sm bowel clean)
they replaced my iron with iron dextran and I had a reaction to it making my ferritin level go up to over 4000. I also had an increase in liver enymes. (truely felt great for 2 months) now 3 months later, I am unable to do what I used to do.blood work last week was 100% normal for chem/cbc/tsh (ferritin still a bit high but keeps dropping each month 298) I can work for 4 hours then I'm exhausted, ready to go to sleep. i worked 4 hours then came home and slept for 18 hours, was very cold, unable to get my temp above 97.5 with heating blankets and extra clothes,extreme pain in upperbody (chest/arms, not joints, maybe skin?)painful to the point of tears. that resolved when I did a hot shower and slept all those hours.(also tingley hands) NO gi symptons.1 day later, I'm good for 2 hours then need to rest for 2 hours, temp low normal today. if I eat something sweet, it perks me up for 5 mins (glu normal)
I've been checked for B12,hepatitus,lupus, lyme.
when all this started, symptoms were fatigue, unable to climb 1 flight of stairs without being out of breath, general weakness.
I am seeing a hematologist, I am not sure where I need to go next. I'm so tired of being tired and unable to do anything anymore.
