I have just about every one of your symptoms. I don't really hurt all over but the sore tongue, fatigue etc. I have had anemia off and on for years. Last week I went to the doctor. My hemoglobin was 9 which should be between 12 and 16 and my ferritin level (stored iron in bone marrow) was 2. It should be around 50 or 60. Usually in just a CBC they don't check the ferritin level. The last time I was iron deficient anemic, my hemoglobin was ok but my ferritin was 4. I felt bad then but not as bad as now. Do you get short of breath too? After I went to the doctor and found out exactly what was wrong with me, my anxiety wasn't quite as bad. I also got the combination vitamin B shot and it helped the lightheadedness. Hope this helps. Get your ferritin level checked. Oh yeh, I am allergic to iron pills so have to depend on the food I eat. Yuck
