Stopped iron pills per family PC now having nervous spells a lot, leg achy, headaches, weak. All this come from stopping the iron pills?

Stopped iron pills per family PC now having nervous spells a lot, leg achy, headaches, weak. All this come from stopping the iron pills?

Likely unrelated: It is probably a coincidence. If your current hemoglobin is 12.5, that is actually probably normal (depending on the lab normals at your lab). So, very possibly, your doctor didn't think you needed the iron pills. These symptoms are due to something else:? anxiety. Make sure you are getting enough calcium, consider taking some vitamin D for aching legs, and work with your doctor for other answers ...Read more

Persistent painful headache for 3 days. Hasn't gone away at all. Sore achy stiff legs for same 3 days. What could be causing this?

Many things: It is hard to say whether or not the headache and achy stiff legs are caused by the same thing. You need a full history & physical, and possibly lab to make a diagnosis. Headaches usually fall into 3 categories: 1. muscle/tension 2. migraine and 3. other. The third category includes many uncommon and rare conditions, some serious and some not. As usual, a physician consult is indicated. ...Read more

Wake with headache infalammation in spine an leg ache an trouble with balance an weakness fatigue is this migraine or what?

I would see a doctor: Waking up drained, unsteady & in pain and with a headache can be from several causes. One that I see frequently in my practice is nocturnal seizures. Most seizures are more likely to occur during sleep. Sometimes the only way to figure out that seizures have occurred is the patient comes in saying they feel lethargic and beat up when they awaken. Having had a lobectomy in 2010, I would get an EEG ...Read more

My 3yr has pains in her arms, legs and complained of tummy ache for 2 mnths, doc said nothing, now headaches, tired and has had 1 weird hallucination?

Go back: The list of possible causes to her symptoms is long. She may even have a central nervous system issue or infection like lyme disease. Often with a variety of symptoms as hers, you aren't given a diagnosis the first time you're evaluated so she needs to go back and ask the doctor to re-evaluate her for other causes.
