I gave birth last thursday and ended up on surgery as the placenta didn't detach and I lost over 1L of blood.
Ended up anemic, and had 2 bags of blood transfused in hospital. After that my level was 80ish. Been discharged and told to take iron tablets. I have no idea what dose, I had some ferro-tab 200mg at home so started taking them.
So the question is when I take the iron tablets, my symptoms get worse. I get ridiculously dizzy and short of breath. Generally feeling 10x worse then before I take them, is this normal?
I have taken iron tabs before but never felt crook afterwards.
