You know all those symptoms I was attributing to the steroids--the dizziness, the lightheadedness, the rapid heartbeat? Well, I got a blood test yesterday, and my doctor called this morning: "You're quite anemic. If you were younger I'd insist on you getting a transfusion."

He went on to describe what effects I might have been having--dizziness, lightheadedness, and a rapid heartbeat when I tried to do much of anything. Surprise!

So he has me taking iron twice a day, and I get another blood test next week.
