Anemia Overview

Anemia or anaemia (British English) is a blood disorder in which the blood has a reduced ability to carry oxygen. This can be due to a lower than normal number of red blood cells, a reduction in the amount of hemoglobin available for oxygen transport, or abnormalities in hemoglobin that impair its function. The name is derived from Ancient Greek \u1f00\u03bd- (an-) 'not', and \u03b1\u1f37\u03bc\u03b1 (haima) 'blood'. When anemia comes on slowly, the symptoms are often vague, such as tiredn...

Persistent Side Effects from Injectafer

My first dose was given four days ago and I am still feeling nauseous, muscle pain and cold sweats. Realizing that we're all different, I'm hoping someone's experience with Injectafer is better than mine and can offer some hope that things get better. Compared to my Infed and Venofer infusions this is the worst I've felt afterwards. This is my first try at a forum. Thank you for any advice. ## Those can be normal side effects of such infusions and, unfortunately, they don't always improve or go away. Some people end up with such symptoms for life. You may also experience dizziness, flushing and darkening of the skin at the administration site. Has it improve any, yet? Why were you switched off of the others, were they no longer working? ## I had mine on Friday (it...

Dizziness and shortness of breath after Ferinject

My first ferinject last year made me feel amazing. But 11 days after the last one and I’m very dizzy, shortness of breath, and pounding heart (even though my pulse is normal). There was nausea but luckily that has subsided. I’m pretty much bed ridden. When will this end ?? ## It is hard to say, some people may experience side effects from iron infusions for a long period of time, and there have been cases where the side effects never went away. The typical side effects may include the symptoms you've experienced, along with headache, joint/muscle aches, skin discoloration, and taste changes. Ref: Iron Infusion Information Are you on any other medications? Why are you receiving the Ferinject?

Venifor IV blew in my wifes hand

My wife was in a hospital for a stomach surgery. Recovery was slow and the staff decided to give her a Venofer IV infusion. She had a IV in each hand. The first hand IV blew earlier that day. So they used the other one, which my wife had complained it burned in previous uses and staff had quit using it. As the nurse injected the Venofer my wife experienced and complained of immediate burning but nurse finished injection.; There was immediate major discoloration and swelling.

Injectafer facial tingling & mental confusion from activity

I was received a dose of Injectafer over a year ago. The evening after I got it, my lips and tongue felt tingly. That night I went to a friend's house for dinner with my husband. Everyone noticed I seemed a little drunk though we had no alcohol. We thought it was odd but nothing alarming. Since then, my lips and tongue always feel numb/tingle. The more active I am, the more they tingle and it spreads to my entire head. But the biggest problem is everyday physical activities, such as going up stairs can make my brain 'drunk?' I get easily confused, can forget something I just did minutes ago and feel like I'm in a dream state. If I lay around on the couch for a few days, I can get my head back to normal, but that's not doable when you have kids. Has anyone else had sy...

However, there are always some people whose bodies are different, and something seen as unusual for others, is normal for them, which is why in medicine, we never swear that anything applies 100% to everyone. For example, I have a fri...

Side effects of Aranesp users
