So maybe it’s not a brain tumor after all?

Just got back the results from some blood work. Turns out that my iron levels are super low (like, blood transfusion low). This kind of explains why I’ve felt so shitty lately, both physically and emotionally. Everything below applies to how the past month has been for me.

Symptoms of ferritin count below 50 ng/mL:

  • Anxiety/depression/irritability
  • Unusual food cravings/lack of appetite (When before in my life has breakfast cereal been undesirable to me? And when have I ever before wanted to eat an egg?)
  • Heart palpitations
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness/dizziness
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Cold sensitivity
  • Headaches
  • Muscle twitches
