I was in the same boat - out of breath just walking to my car, muscles burning, etc. My HGB had gone from 9.9 to 7.8 (ferritin was down to 2) in just about a week and a half, and it had gotten a lot worse. They sent me for a blood transfusion because the levels were too low to adequately move the oxygen through my body, and I can say that after the transfusion, I didn't get short of breath walking out to my car, and it has been getting better since (this was just on Friday). I start IV iron this week to sustain my levels while we continue to search for root cause, but I can tell you it has made a HUGE difference for me, so I would completely agree with Christine and her suggestions on next steps - because I know that feeling you are talking about and it can be very scary when it gets bad.
