Low ferretin levels can cause quite a lot of various side effects and it can vary from person to person. Head spins and dizzyness can be anemia related or even due to low blood pressure.

Do your blood test results actually state that your 'ferretin' is 12? Sometimes there are test results for various other things to do with iron, but not your ferretin. It's the ferretin you want to know as it shows your actual 'iron storage'. If your ferretin actually is 12 then that is low. It could be the very bottom of the range which the lab uses, but regardless it's low. Often people don't start feel a little bit better until their ferretin has gotten into the high teens or into the 20's.

Keep taking your iron supplements and after a month or so you ought to get retested to see if you are absorbing iron. You might not notice a huge difference in just one week.
