Hi, I've been struggling with what my doctor described as "severe anemia" since 2015. He put me on ferrous sulphate since then but I've not recovered from it in the 6 months course like he explained. He noticed something weird about my recent blood test (high iron storage and low haemoglobin if I remember correctly?) and now suspects I might have Thalassemia. I read up about this and it seems that it's something a person is born with, but I've not felt major symptoms before 2015. Is it possible that I've had it my whole life and it's suddenly gotten worse?
I know I'm asking this before an actual diagnosis (I have a Haemoglobinopathy screening to do next), but I'm feeling a little paranoid that it might be something more serious and wanted to ask about the possibilities
