Well i was in the hospital a few weeks ago because i had a really bad flair up cause of my Crohn's disease. well the did blood work and seen that my IRON WAS EXTREMELY LOW!! Well back in march that's when i found out i was anemic cause of the disease and my doctor told me you're blood count is dropping. So just now this past month i finally got iron from the hospital and my iron scores sky rocketed. I feel warmer i have way more energy no chest pains or anything i feel normal again. Now i see a hematologist every month to see how i am doing. Smile Smile

OMG THIS IS WONDERFUL NEWS!!! I am SO happy for you that your iron has gone UP and you feel "NORMAL" again!!!

It is SO hard for SO many with chronic anemia to get to that place... CONGRATULATIONS! Great that you are seeing your hematologist regularly and keeping an eye on everything...

I hope and pray that your crohn's disease does not flare again!!! *HUGS*
