Iron Infusion After Effects

25 February 2014 - 05:36 AM

Hi all, after being gluten free now for about 14 months my iron levels are still very low. Is this normal and how long did it takes yours to come back better levels?

Last week I was given an iron infusion as the iron tablets don't seem to do anything. I'm due another infusion in a couple of days.

Well I still feel absolutely exhausted/breathless and wanting mid day naps. Really getting frustrated now.

Has anyone had iron infusions and if so did you have any after effects? I woke up the next day with a booming headache and now have flu type symptoms, achey my arms and legs feel so heavy, dizzy, sickly, can't concentrate and still so tired. Is this normal as I wasn't told anything by the hospital on what to expect. Thanks
