Have you ever asked your PCP for a referral to a specialist? Without more details, my generic advise would be to look a hematologist or a gastroententerologist to do a work up.
I have a type of Anemia that causes me to need iron infusions (different from the common low-iron that can be fixed with diet). I’ll get a series of infusions, then my iron will begin to drop. My issue is that my primary care physician will only prescribe the infusions once my iron levels reach 0, meaning I spend the majority of my time very depleted. I’m wondering if anyone else has this problem and has seen a specialist of some sort, either a Hematologist or preferably someone who works with athletes that can monitor and help maintain these levels. I’m not sure who exactly to look for.
