... and I had 3 iron infusions in April. I never really felt any better except the next day after the 3rd infusion, and only that day. But I have been feeling worse and called my doc. and she did blood work again. Now the nurse tells me that my iron is down to 18 from 25 and that is after taking supplements and having 3 iron infusions. I don't understand why my iron went down. She said my hemoglobin was 11 where it was 9 back in Feb. Also, does anemia cause you to lose hair, like handfuls daily? Any comments would be appreciated
