I have anaemia and RA, my rhummy told me they usually go hand in hand.
Out of curiousity Verity what is your blood reading? My h.b. is 10.5. I believe it should be 12.5.
I am not on any iron pills, mind I am not tired either.

Hi Angela
With the iron pills I tend to be low end of 10 or high 9's. It fluctuates from week to week. Although Its better than it was before the iron pills I still get tired. its frustrating! Theres things I need to do other than sleeping! lol

I think iron levels can also be dependent on your family history? My mum has always had low iron levels which doesn't help matters!
