4 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Bit

I use the "Lucky Iron Fish" - my doctor said my iron levels were some of the highest she had ever seen for a woman. I'd previously been borderline anaemic. It probably helps me to feel a bit less drained and helps with all the blood that gets taken for tests, but other than that I am not sure how much iron has helped ME/CFS symptoms.

I have taken Iron all my adult life, OTC but at prescription strengths, at the advice of a succession of doctors. I don't take it for CFS/ME, though; I take it because without it I develop idiopathic anemia.
