I have had discectomy C4,5,6,7 Oct 11 I have not had any energy whatsoever and I have vagal response and I get sick to my stomach like I might pass out which makes me feel worse. I have just found out from the VA that my iron is high in the 500 but I have been trying to eat foods with iron to make me feel better I don't have any appetite.
