obsessive thinking and fear stopping me functioning

Posted by @lancashiregal, Mar 9, 2012

Suddenly 8mths ago I was anemic with low serum ferritin.. the doctor just keeps giving me iron pills but doesn’t look for a cause.. everything I read on line suggests that anemia in post menopausal women is serious..my doctor just says I am not absorbing iron… or it could be hemolytic anemia but he doesn’t test me for that I am sick with worry and I can’t turn it off .. anyone else suffer from this nightmare..

I have had low ferritin for the past 5 years. I cannot get it past 30, my current reading is 10, despite taking daily iron supplements. My iron levels are normal, it’s just my ferritin that is very low.
