What causes fatigue and joint pain after iron infusion?

I have a low WBC. I have B12 anemia and iron deficiency anemia 10 years post gastric bypass. I also have scattered petechiae on my upper body, joint aches and pains and fatigue. I take B12 injections now every 2 weeks and had an iron infusion 6 weeks ago. I still don t feel well. Any thoughts?

Hello,

The fatigue and joint pain that you have can be due to decreased fluid intake. Do get your vitamin D3 levels checked and start with supplements if needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon

I have joint pain, fatigue, cold all the time, lots of pain and very tired all the time. Had tests for RH arthritis and blood work is good except for vitamin d deficiency. Iron not too bad, had infusions in past for low iron so it is better. The joint pain feels like when I had rheumatic fever as a kid, comes and goes, no swelling or redness. I am 68, over weight but very active. Still work full time.

Hey, I had done tri dot test couple of years later after I had unprotected sex. The results came negative which was about 9 years ago . But now I m experiencing fatigue, joint pains, swollen glands in neck and 1 large swollen gland in thigh. Or can this be because of chronic depression since I ve always worried about it for past 10 years?

Hi there, i am experiencing a sudden increase in fatigue, appetite, and joint pain. Interestingly enough this all started after my scheduled week off from weight lifting. I struggle a lot with depression and im not sure if this could be related to that or perhaps my active lifestyle? I take a week off from the gym every 8 weeks or so to avoid over training and im confused about why i feel more fatigued than ever. Thoughts?

I am a 52 year old female. 6 years post hysterectomy. No Ovaries. I am on meds for depression and antiflamattories for severe shoulder tendinitis (both sides). Recent MRI suggested possible anemia due to dark bone marrow appearance. Starting a few days ago I smell all milk as sour. Even cheese. My family insists the milk is NOT sour so it has to be me. I have quit all milk products to avoid the smell.
