I have no insurance so getting labs done is not going to happen. For some odd reason the Dr will never order the ferritin test but does the other standard panel. I am often anemic by those test standards but last tests came back ok. Last tests were a few months ago when I did have insurance.

I am 45, have heavy periods that are coming every 25 days now.

I have had these exact symptoms before and they come and go.

I have arm shakiness, so very tired, nausea, short of breath, come chest pain at times, extreme irritability, difficulty sleeping very well and waking once or twice a night with hard time getting back to sleep.

Last time my labs came back low I took iron till the standard panel came back normal, about 2 months. I just wonder if my iron was really normal or if I was still having issues that might be determined by a ferritin test. I have had anemia issues off and on since my 20's but never have had a ferritin test.
