Hi all, Cindy from Alaska. dx w/ MS 1/08-no insurance for ages-finally got it and my ferritin is in the 800 and b-6 is 160. I am a vegetarian-lifelong. I was taking a multi-vitamin w/out iron as 4 years ago w/ ins blood test showed high iron. I have kids, pets and am single on ssdi and am sooooo sick. I eat really well, exercise, the rest of my tests were good-heart, cholesterols, b-12, D, kidneys, liver enzymes and hormones. I am going into menopause early -overnight.Fighting multiple sclerosis is hard enough this is beyond me. ache, dizzy, cramps, weak, cog-fog,major fatigue. how or could these be related? the high ferritin and b-6 does not even make sense....I am a parent and need to function-have no money but am resourceful. what chelates b-6 and iron? phlebotomy helps latter-how about former? I am only a soial drinker at best. I feel like my body hates me. what OTC, natrupathic, homeopathic, medical step worked to ease this and improve removal? I do have an ENT, Neuro., and GP working on this but it takes long. I am ready to get leeches...I want this blood gone. any help, ideas, advice support is welcome on forum or PM. I cannot run a house, raise kids, fight MS, iron, b-6 all alone. it's just too horrible...oh I have HBP and eighth cranial nerve damage from MS as well.
