Severe muscle and joint pains and iron deficiency.
Can anyone give me something to search, my family doctor seems to be ignoring the facts blaming the symptoms on iron deficiency. I need the starting point for my research. I have a hard time to walk, the pain is moving from my tight to the hip, I also have a pain behind my ears and headache. I feel very tired, have flue like symptoms.
I also sweat a lot at night.
When I was young I had similar pains and one doctor even diagnosed me with LUPUS, shortly after another one told me that this is not Lupus.
I would like to do some blood work for the beginning please suggest what should I test for.
