Yes, that is my main symptom. My legs always feel weak when I walk and ache. I am thinking it is from the low ferritin I have and anemia. I hate it though because it makes you feel exhausted. Do your legs feel weak too?

I also have aching tired legs. I have never been diagnosed with RLS but my doctor told me with the low iron and ferritin level I have that was a 5 most likely I do. When I wake up in the morning, it never feels like I slept. My legs feel weak and tired and I was told that can come from moving them in my sleep and not knowing it. Is your ferriting low also Alexain?

Hi. I'm a bit late on this board, but I wanted to say that when I started taking an iron supplement (Floradix), I had my Ferritin at 3, then 9, then 29, and now it's 87. I got to 87 in a matter of 6-7 months nearly.

BUT my legs/calves are still aching. Not so much as before, but it's still a disturbing symptom, and I'm starting to doubt whether my tired legs had to do with anemia only. By the way, my anemia went away in a couple of months, it was only Ferritin that was still low, but I don't think that now, with ferritin at 87 I should have low-iron symptoms (like sleepiness, too).

Has anyone noticed whether your legs get more tired in summer, when the weather is hot? (or, winter for Aussies)

Dear ladies, a few days ago I found another reason for having weak / easily-tired legs, and I thought to post it here, just for info. I discovered being Copper deficient, and I have low Magnesium, too. The deficiency of both can cause tired/achy legs symptom.

Hello,
I was severely anemic with a ferritin level of 5 and my legs felt very weak all the time. My calves use to hurt me on a regular basis also especially during my sleep. Now that my iron level is up they feel so much better, so yes to your question. I personally believe that low iron can affect so many parts of our bodies (at least it did for me and still does when my iron level drops).
