I've been diagnosed with iron-deficiency anemia. I have a history of this, but no doctor has really been able to give me any answers of why it keeps happening. I try to eat the foods that are good sources of iron (I prefer the natural way), but that doesn't seem to be enough for me. I have a problem with constipation when using the iron supplements, so I was wondering if anyone has ever tried intravenous (IV) iron supplementation? If yes, any side effects from it? Does anyone know if there are any risks doing this when you have a CM in the brainstem?
I've struggled with dizziness and balance issues since my 2014 brain stem bleed. And, the dr. said that iron deficiency anemia can cause dizziness.
