I just posted something sort of similar. I am beginning to wonder if my low iron levels 15 years ago (and not being treated or taken seriously) were what caused phobias. Feeling weak and dizzy while standing in lines (at the grocery store for example) developed into a claustrophobia.

I recently gave this anxiety issue some serious thought and come up with my problem in a nutshell: I am afraid of not feeling well (dizzy, weak) and not being able to get home and/or faint. I now feel very phobic about being too far from home because that horrible weak/faint/dizziness was so disturbing.

I only learned about my low ferritin levels recently, but I know for a fact that feeling so weak has increased my anxiety, whether it was a biochemical result or a psychological one, or both.

Changing my diet has helped immensely, (enough protein each day, complex carbs, no sugar at all) and I'm hopeful that getting my iron levels up will really relieve my "mental" worries.

If I can go out without feeling the [I]symptoms of anemia[/I] I wouldn't panic!!!
