You must be BSing me. I go to the hospital for tooth pain and come back with a prescription for antibiotics. I have to take them every eight hours for seven days with food.

You need both iron and B-12 to create blood cells and if the B-12 isn't there, your body may be freeing up more iron trying to generate blood, but without adequate B-12, the iron may just be floating around.

This sub-lingual form of B-12 is better absorbed if you don't have the stomach acid needed to convert B-12 from dietary sources.

I still have the pain in my stomach. Its been two years now. I take pain meds for it but there is nothing else anyone seems to know about the pain.

It is right under my chest bone, at the top of my stomach. I have no gall bladder, it was removed in 2004.
