Hi, I have been experiencing a very strong taste of blood in my mouth for a few days.
Not metallic, but very strong blood (like when you bit your lip and it bleeds)
I have checked numerous times and there is no blood at all.
I have alway been anemic, I have been on Iron tablets and my iron has always been low still.
It gets worse around my period and the last period I ended up fainting, I went to a new dr and he prescribed me some new iron tablets and told me to take double the dose for the first 2 weeks then the normal dose.
He also said it it hadn't improved dramatically in a month he would send me up to the hospital for an evaluation for a hemoglobin transfusion.
Any way I have been feeling so much better, no fainting, and I don't have bruises on me, and my energy is through the roof. I haven't been like this for a long time..
Any way after my 2 weeks of the double dose I have been having the blood taste in my mouth... Do you think that could be a link between the two? Or does this sound like something else?
I'm booked in next week with him for a follow up blood test.
But I'm thinking of going in sooner as its getting to be quite annoying.
Thanks in advance
