Did you just start eating a lot of red meat? I had a similar situation as you, high iron, lowish ferritin. This happened because I donated blood, which dropped my ferritin too low. I wanted to get my ferritin levels back up. So I started taking iron pills. What happened then is that my iron levels went up, like yours. But it took a few more months for my ferritin to rise up again. If you are like me, your ferritin should start increasing in a few months.
On the other hand it is possible that your body is not like mine and will do something else. But I wanted to share my experience.
