Hey :wave: Jetblacknewyear, I just had to responed to your post. I too found out I was anemic 2 years ago because of heavy periods. I had headaches, my heart would race with very little exertion, and sometimes, it different happen often or I would have gone to the doctors alot sooner, when I would get up form a sitting postion my head felt like it had a ton of pressure on it, it only lasted a couple of seconds but it should didn't feel good. Anyway I finally wnet to the doctors, had blood work done and found out I was anemic. I was told to take 2 iron tablets daily and no sooner did I start them I could feel a difference in the way I felt. I couln't believe all I needed was these 2 little pills! Well it's been 2 years and I still have to take the iron tablets daily because my periods are still heavy. I don't want to take birth control pills to lessen the bleeding seeing that I'm 43 and don't want to be taking the pill because they have there own risks to them. So I continue to take th iron pills and I feel pretty good but my iron levels are always around 40, which is on the low side. I think the total iron levels are 35-150. So you see I'm just making it in the iron levels but it's enough that my blood levels always come out normal. Anyway I really wanted to let you know that I to in that time period started to get very anxious for no reason at all. I would start feeling anxious driving in traffic or when I went out to eat. This went on for about 1 1/2 years until I finally couldn't take feeling like that anymore. My doctor put me on Zoloft and now I feel like my old self again! I don't feel anxious anymore! Anyway that's my long story and everyone is different, just keep going to your follow up apps with your doctors and take care,

Patty :angel:
