Hi Stephie,

The best advice we can give to you is to see your doctor to get checked out for anemia and asthma. We can't tell you if you have it without knowing what your blood will show. If it does show anemia, your doctor will need to check to see if your are deficient in B-vitamins or in iron. And, if you don't like pills, there are other ways to get iron. Eating iron does help to prevent anemia, but it sometimes isn't enough if you are already anemic. Even with iron - pills, liquid or IV - it can take a long time to resolve the anemia. And, just taking the iron to help your body make more blood may not fix the problem. You have to figure out why you are anemic - usually blood loss. Whatever the cause is, that has to be taken care of to really fix the problem. You will be a better athlete and enjoy life a lot more if you find out what is wrong and get it treated. Just tell your doctor that you have a hard time with pills. They can work with you to teach you how to take them or to find another way for you to get the right nutrients.
