    B Vitamin injections are much more effective than supplements. I was getting them twice per week in the beginning.

    I take 300 mg of elemental iron per day.

    Hi! Do your leg symptoms happen during the day more than at night? Mine do and it's causing me to be off balance. I know my levels are low but no one has been able to tell me exactly if it's from my anemia
