I have the double genetic condition of hemachromatosis, my iron levels are only 216. I have been suffering from fatigue, skin discolouration, low libido, stomach discomfort for about 3 years,now I also hav esore joints, aching muscles, chest pain and heart palpations, and my Dr dismised all my concerns. he said I have no signs of hemachromatosis and wont for years. I insisted on seeing a specialist and he isn't very happy with me. Im mainly worried about my chest pains but he wont check my heart. Help!
