All gastro issues were rulled out. Hematologist thinks possible menstrual issue my OB'GYN doesnt think its sole cause. Scared its something ominous. Have bloodwork done often need iron infusions every 3-4 months. So tired of dealing with this. Why cant doctors figure this out. I want my life back!
That's tough. They haven't discovered why you have a deficiency because its just the way your body processes Iron now. They may never find out "why". It is a manageable deficiency once your treatment is working but no treatment for this is quick. It takes months to see results. Feel free to go to other Drs. and get a second opinion but stay on a treatment plan.
