I had my first iron infusion on Monday (it is now Sunday) as I am severely iron deficient. I was not informed that there would be any side effects by my doctor or hematologist. Since Monday I have been bedridden with the worst migraines, chronic nausea, shoulder and neck muscle spasms, loss of appetitive, heightened sense of smell which in turn makes me vomit a lot, no energy, swollen glands, the feeling that something is crawling under my skin, itchiness, irritability, needing to urinate excessively, clammy mouth and sore joints.
Is this normal? I've been to the doctor and he just gave me anti nausea medication which hasn't worked. I'm freaking out. I've just wasted a whole week in bed and still feel awful.
