My anemia got diagnosed only because my very astute therapist said "go get a bloodtest, just to rule out a physical problem" and lo and behold, I was low in iron and becoming anemic (my ferritin was at 4, which means practically no storage). My hair was falling out and I was semi-depressed and having anxiety symtoms, which is why I went to see the therapist in the first place. I was just so on edge with the kids and my husband, I thought I needed anti depressants.

I have been on iron supplements for a couple of months now and feel MUCH MUCH better now. I still have my normal "grumpy mom" moments, but overall, I feel like myself again. I was getting vague headaches and fatigue as well, which I attributed to stress, but that were actually from the iron deficiency.

Good luck and if you don't start feeling better within a month, as for a specialist referral.
