    Also I think I'll look into quitting the coffee thing too. Ho hum
    My B12 was low hence the shots however I have known plenty of people that have had them without it being low. I would speak to your GP and see what they have to say.

    I only function by having 3 monthly B12 injections and iron tablets (occasionally - every couple of years - an iron infusion) but I'd recommend getting a blood test to check a range of factors...it's amazing what blood results can tell a dr

    Maybe I should speak to my doctor about these.
    I was called earlier in the week to come in because of my iron results, so seeing GP tomorrow. Recently they started mapping my iron at different stages during my cycle to see what's going on (it's very low and they were concerned it was dipping into anaemia when I get my period) so will have to see how that goes. I might ask about the b12 though. Even though I know the iron is the root of my problems

    @Ahalfdozen sometimes B12 can cause iron to be low and vice versa, could be something to look into.

    That's interesting. Let us know what your doc says 😊

    Well just saw GP. She opened my file and just went "oh wow. You're very anaemic" so I got a script for Ferrograd C. Doing double dose for a week, then single dose for 3 weeks. Getting more bloods done and if it hasn't improved enough we will discuss the shots.

    Remember to up your fibre/fruit/water intake. I had to take these after DD's birth due to PPH-induced anaemia, and it can back you up quite a bit (iron supplements do that).

    Yeh I've been on iron tablets on and off for the better part of 15 years. I always make sure I keep prunes around too just in case hah

    Wow! Hope that improves for you. I'm on the same supplement at the moment. I've been anaemic before so just put myself on them a week ago to see if they help with how I'm feeling. Haven't had any recent blood tests though. Good luck
