I am dealing with a similar situation. I have had severe muscle weakness and soreness for over a year. I finally tested vitamin d and b 12, which were both low. I recently checked my TIBC and ferritin. It is labs you need to thoroughly check for your iron. I also checked my hemoglobin which was only 11.7 but still low. I think I am mildly anemic. I started iron last week. So time will tell.

I also feel worse during my periods (weak and sore). And yes women who have heavy menstrual cycles can be anemic from that. I really think checking those labs may be a good idea. Doctors tend to overlook vitamin deficiencies. They go straight to the most serious issues. I was tested for ms, lupus, Lyme disease. All sorts of issues. But why not start with the basics first.

I hope you find answers!

Thanks for your reply. I think will look into getting tested.
