- DX FIBRO
I thought I read enough about Fibromyalgia to know all about it. Well, my experience these past 6 months taught me something I did not know. I had back surgery in April. The hospital did blood work and it showed I was anemic. No one told me I was anemic, not the hospital or my surgeon. My primary care doctor, in October, saw that my hemoglobin was very low. I have been suffering with fibro flare after fibro flare. I did some research and found out that anemia can cause fibro flares. I also read that most people with fibromyalgia are low in iron. I have never read or heard this information until now. I am now taking Iron supplements under a doctor's care. I haven't been taking iron long enough to know if it helps. I will post my results. I wanted to share this information with others. Maybe it can help someone else.
