I had a Drs appointment and he said my ferritin levels were low at 24... I thought 24 was in the normal range...
Anyway he decided he wanted to do an iron injection right there and then. But by the time I got home I developed strange marks on my hands and fingers (gone now) and have just felt awful! Like my temps at 37.9 and my eyes feel like they are burning..
I went to the Drs because I’ve had odd physical symptoms like:
Internal humming/vibrating feeling
Pain behind my left ear
Pain in my throat (low down almost in my neck... if that makes sense).
Pain under tongue
Muscle spasms (usually in chest and eyes)
Trouble sleeping etc etc
Now this Dr orders FBC, iron studies, liver test, kidney test, Urine sample, lipids (cholesterol) & thyroid... I asked for specific testing but he did the general blood test even though I said my Mum had hers diagnosed using specific testing
Everything was fine other than the ferritin levels... but my ferritin levels were as low as 8 a few years ago and I didn’t have ANY of the above symptoms...
What the hell is going on? Any ideas?
