I have been on Iron pills for the last 9 months. In July, my number was 129. In December it was down to 116. I just got another test done and the number is up a bit but not much. My doctor told me that I have to be on iron for a year now. I've been getting bruises that can't be explained. They aren't just little bruises either. The one on my inner calve (that I just woke up with) is about 2-3 inches in diameter and all different colours. I haven't seen one like this before. Even when I really hurt myself I don't get bruises like this. I have light regular periods. No nosebleeds, no unexplained bleeding to cause the anemia and I eat very well (have to set a good example for my two little ones). I do get bad headaches right behind my eyes mostly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
