I can relate. I've been iron deficient for a looooong time and am often anemic as a result. This may sound really strange but I sometimes feel better when I'm anemic!! It's almost as if my body is exhausted from working sooooo hard to try and keep up the blood counts with almost no iron to do it. When I'm anemic I feel like my body is finally saying OK I give up, I need a break!! I don't respond well to oral iron so I also get IV iron when my Hgl levels get too low. Even that is not a quick fix as it takes my body a bit to realize the iron is there and can now be used! I also don't hold onto it for very long. Definitely read thru the other posts and you'll find many stories similar to your own. I must be about your age and I think that is playing an important role. I seemed to tolerate the anemia better when I was younger. Now it seems to wear on me more. Even though my hematologist has stated to the contrary I still worry about what else I'm not absorbing.
