Since you have been low in Ferritin, you may also be low in Vit B12 or folic acid, which could be causing the numbness in hands. Low ferritin can cause RLS, and you probably need to get your ferritin above 50 for the RLS to respond and go away. I don't think with your ferritin and blood count at these levels, it is the cause of your fatigue. Depleted iron will cause hair loss and it can take several months to start growing growing back in after iron stores are corrected. I would continue the iron as long as your periods are so heavy, and get a ferritin checked yearly to make sure you aren't getting too much iron replacement. B12 and folate levels can be checked in blood to see if they are adequate.
