Stomach pain while taking iron

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain while taking iron


Avatar f tn If you need medication, the above will help you decrease the amount to take as soon as you get it under control. Suggest taking vitamin C supplement with Iron supplement (not on an empty stomach), and eat vitamin C foods with iron foods (example – mashed potatoes with meat) to help with absorption. Hoped this helped.
Avatar n tn you aren't supposed to drink milk or take any dairy products when you are taking that little red iron pill. ferrous sulfate, right? Thats the iron pill they gave me when I was pregnant, and I always took it with a big ol glass of milk, and a grilled cheese. BUT my iron levels were still way low. So finally my doc asked me if I was taking it with milk, and I told him I was...
Avatar f tn Vitamins C, vitamin B12, folate, zinc helps non-heme iron absorption. Also check your stomach pH levels. Low stomach acid is a common reason for poor nutrient absorption. Try out the baking soda test (i posted this on another answer a while back)... :) http://www.medhelp.

Some other reasons are Iron is a Heavy Metal, so you may put on weight. Iron makes your Liver rusty Take too much and you will turn into Popeye. Sorry couldnt help myself.
Avatar m tn Sugar intake seems to correlate to stomach pain in my particular case. I cut out most refined sugars during college while I was running cross-country and it seemed to help immensely.
Avatar n tn For the past couple of weeks i have had stomach pains. Its a pain that seems not to go away. Like when you eat to much and you need to use the restroom. I wake up and its still there. Saturday i just started getting sharp pain in my sides, upper back and lower back around the the love handles. Also during the day i feel very light headed and dizzy. Its really strange and kinda of scary.
Avatar f tn 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. Well, now I can't f**king take them because they're too hard on my stomach. If I take my medicine I'll throw up what little I've been able to eat and won't be able to eat again for hours, if I don't then I'm taking a chance of a wisdom tooth infection staying put. This is the best medical science can do??
1927233 tn?1326673987 I was diagnosed with post-infectious IBS and given iron supplements. Its now been 2 months since I started taking iron pills. My ferretin is back to 11 and my hemoglobin is way high. The hematologist says I should have gotten my energy levels back by now, but nothing has changed! I'm STILL not back at work, I'm in bed ALL day, I walk half-way around the block and I am out of breath! No doctor has found the cause ofmy fatigue, I can't stand it anymore, its destroying my life! What couldit be??
Avatar m tn I'm a 12 year old girl and every once in a while I have severe stomach pains and diarrhea. I get cold sweats and feel light headed and almost as if I could pass out. After the cycle is done I feel fine and only as if my stomach is sore. I'm greatly concerned about it because it has happened many times before.
1927233 tn?1326673987 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. If you're taking a lot of stomach meds or acid reducers, you might look into trying some "B-12 dots". 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.
Avatar n tn Causes may be anemia and deficiency of vitamins C, K, B12, or folic acid, SLE, bone marrow disorders, liver diseases or leukemias Anti-clotting (anti-coagulants) medication also can cause increased bruising. Try taking iron tablets and multivitamins for some days and see if the symptoms improve.If the symptoms persist or worsen,then pls discuss these possibilities with your doctor. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted in case of any additional queries.
1355431 tn?1369978906 It can cause iron poisoning. It's what my doctor was talking about when I tried taking iron pills after I found out I was no longer anemic. Sometimes I feel really tired and weak and think my iron is low, but every time I go to the doctor for a check up it's fine. It's just my stress and anxiety that makes me feel like that...
Avatar f tn Is it better to take the am separate from the vitamins and stuff or the pm closer to bedtime or earlier at dinner. The shot i have been taking about 10p. but notice that I can not sleep well that night or for several days after either. Is it the peg. that causes wakefulness? does the procrit or riba cause wakeful? I usually take with food (but sometimes not). thank you.
Avatar n tn I did talk to a pharmacist today when I picked it up ( I got it filled at a different pharmacy) She recommended taking it with lots of water, and an empty stomach. She also recommended that I did not lie down until 30 minutes after taking it. I have been taking it when I get up in the I luckily have been following directions- but I had not been told this before.
Avatar f tn Diagnosed with 7 cm liver hemangioma. Recently having extreme stomach pain/spasms. No longer have gallbladder. GI doc want's to send me to UCLA for further treatment. I take protonix for ulcers/GERD. Anyone have any input? It's appreciated.

Restoring alkalinity of blood will help us in eating heavy foods. Similarly we must increase alkaline reserves by eating Healthy Salts along with regular table salts with every meal.
Avatar f tn I take 3 advil every 4 hours.That or the Excedrin is going to eat my stomach up. No counting my liver.
Avatar n tn It all started for about 2 years ago when I had a stomach virus or something similar; feeling queezy, severe pain in the abdomen nausea and vomiting one time. Before that day, I was dedicated in lifting weights and grew a lot of muscle mass and I could eat all day with the biggest appetite (5000kcal pr. day).
Avatar n tn yesterday, I didn't take the Licorice, and last night I was up for a while with a stomach ache. I tried taking Rolaids, but the relief lasted only 15-30minutes. This stomach ache/back pain lasted until this morning, when I had breakfast and a Licorice pill. Anyone have any ideas?
Avatar n tn I was literally like 2 days after I stopped taking meds my scrotum stayed nice and high and did not sag in pain. This is good info for anybody taking these meds to know. So when your scrotum is hanging down in pain during your treatment this is normal also the epididymis swelling is down in have in 2 days as well. Something to look forward to for everyone after the prescription runs out. The hot bath or a hot tub witch I used if very important to help with circulation.
Avatar f tn However, my Vit D and ferritin levels have significantly dropped despite taking 50000 IU of vit D for 4 months and Iron supplements with vit C. My Dr. doesn't know what is causing all of this. This past summer I started to get dizzy so I had my levels checked. The ferritin was 20 and the vitamin D was 15. I was placed on supplements for 4 months. The vitamin D went up to 30 and the ferritin dropped to 13.
Avatar f tn Based on the above statement, I'm assuming this is your second pregnancy while addicted to pain killers? If not, then you are indeed involved in "perpetuating propaganda and rumor mongering".
Avatar n tn Since I was a child, and until now (27years old) about once every three months or maybe more, I will have a frightening experience while sleeping. Once I'm asleep, sometimes it feels like my head will get really heavy and there will be a deep low humming sound in my head or maybe a train sound that seems to paralyze my entire body, however once this feeling of heaviness occurs, I wake up internally, but my eyes are not open and I can hear everything going on around me.
Avatar m tn for the past while ive been taking iron supplements because I have low iron and the supplement seem to be making my stomach go nuts , my stomach keeps feeling like it burning especially after I eat its this annoying burning feeling could this be caused by the iron pills
Avatar n tn now I am experiencing actual heartburn symptoms...burning behind breastbone and mild upset stomach.....I did not want to be taking two 150's a day,,,,so I have begun taking 75's one a day to see how that works......just wanted to let you know that acid reflux symptoms are different for everyone, and stomach problems can be acid reflux related......I have been keeping a diary for the last couple of months....listing everything that I eat and drink and any symptoms that I may have......
Avatar f tn Then I asked my hepatologist about iron, while living in the country where the iron levels of the water was quite high. He said I might want to have the water tested because too much iron can cause cirrhosis. He's a top notch doctor, up on all the research. cebean: I've been taking a multivitamin w/o iron for years now. They aren't that hard to find. I get mine in the health food store or online.

Avatar m tn i have been finding a connection between chronic stomach pain, hypothyriodism and panic attacks but i CANNOT find an actual prognosis. anyone heard of anything like this? if not adrenal fatigue then what?
Avatar f tn 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. My current doctor has taken me off the Effexor because he said I didn't need it. That my pain is real but its pretty much a mystery. Its not a constant pain, it comes and goes. It is right under my chest bone, at the top of my stomach. I have no gall bladder, it was removed in 2004.
