UPDATE

Here's the latest: I'd been feeling pretty poorly all week. The doctor told me to switch iron pills (Fergon) and try Tums for the symptoms (which is great because they can't be taken together!). Anyway, I haven't taken any iron since Sunday and I've been feeling awful, so I went in today and he conf...

Well, the other night I wasn't bothered by RLS, but I was constantly waking up from nausea, a stomach ache, and a burning, indigestion feeling in my stomach. It continued all day, peaking in waves. I decided to back off the iron yesterday (in hopes that the answer was as simple as iron pills!). It s...

confused newbie trying to take advantage of all resources!!

Thank you for the info. Mack, my son is no longer taking antihistamines, although I wasn't aware of the link between them and RLS. Good to know. Great links. I haven't yet read them, but I saw one about iron. Apparantly his ferritin levels are normal. Bear with me folks, as I am new to this website ...

You know, I wasn't really aware of how much iron I was taking, but after reading that Aiken was taking 65mg of elemental iron, I was curious to see what I was taking. I take 2 (per the doctor, although he didn't specify how many mgs, he just said to start with one pill and take two after one week) 3...

Thank you so much for your very thorough response. So it sounds like its possible that the iron could be the reason for feeling mildly queasy all the time, despite not having had that symptom earlier on. I was told I wasn't anemic and that the ferritin range for women was 10-289, so it sounded like ...

Young child with PLMD

I don't know why I didn't find this message board sooner. My almost 5 year old has been battling sleep disorders since infancy. He has always hated sleep, even as a young baby. Fought naps; refuses to sleep even if falling down drunk with fatigue; and is exhausted most of the time (although with kid...

Are the side effects of ferrous sulfate cumulative?

I've been taking ferrous sulfate (iron) pills for about a month now, as my ferritin level was 10. I was suprised that it hadn't made me feel sick, but lately I've been feeling a low grade queasiness for days and I don't know if its due to the iron (which has done absolutely nothing for my rls/plmd s...
