Last summer I was feeling really poorly, dizzy, couldn't concentrate, almost passing out, headaches, extreme tiredness, shortness of breath etc. and my doctor did a blood test and this showe my ferritin leve was 5.2 which apparently is really low. I was prescribed ferrous fumurate tablets 210mg 3 times a day. I was on these tablets for quite a while, until December last year, when my doctor decided i was well enough to stop them. However, now I am beginning to feel ill again - headaches, extreme tiredness, dizziness and cannot concentrate and work, and feel really irritable. Basically, all the same as i felt last year! So I've bought the same tablets as you can buy them over the counter, in the hope that they will make me feel better again! But my question is, is it possible for ferritin levels to drop low again in the space of 3 months?! (just to add, i don't have periods as i have the implant fitted!) Thanks, Natalie
