I received some lab reports today and I'm a little surprised. I've had low ferritin levels for the last 20yrs, and if I take iron everyday I can keep my levels up to at least 25-30. So today my levels are at 98!! My ferritin has never been over 35. I haven't been taking that much iron either, so I"m shocked. I'm menopausal but I can't understand how not having a period for 1.5yrs would raise my ferritin levels that high. My TSH has gone up a little to almost 3. My GP won't test free T3 so I'm not going to even waste my energy asking her. My WBC has gone down to 2.9 and now my doctor is a little concerned. I've been fighting a ridiculous viral infection since the last two months, vertigo, red inflammed throat, painful neck/shoulders, exhausting muscles fatigue and weakness. I think I may have had mono? Could this raise ferritin as well?
