Avatar f tn Ferritin is a test for adults? O_o "Serum ferritin is the most accurate test indicating iron status within normal range as well as iron deficiency and excess.

I read where some one who had this problem got some one to punch him in the mouth just so he could get his lip stitched and possibly given something that would help, and of course it didn't. but its probably true that 85% of people who had this issue NEVER recover while the 15% recover in 6 months to a year.
