So for the past couple of weeks Iv been feeling very dizzy, faint, knackered, light headed and occasionally see white esp in the mornings. I work 12 hour shifts on a busy hospital ward and Iv had good few near misses of the floor! My heart palpitates and I lose my breathe very easily. So I made an app with the doctor and got bloods done 14th June. Didn't hear from them so assumed they must have been fine then I went to my 24 week midwife app this week and turns out my ferritin level is 5 which is VERY low. Iv been on iron tablets for weeks as they thought it was low hemoglobin but since I have very little red blood cells to store the iron it's been a complete waste of time. So Iv been put on ferrous sulphate. The midwife told me to serf certify off work but I've never been off sick in my life so a little hesitant but I do dread going in incase I pass out! Anyone else have low ferritin levels?
