I'm still a bit unsure in my case - it seem I had iron deficiency, and then at some point a few months later anemia, but unrelated? to the iron deficiency. The anemia was from a stomach inflammation from H. Pylori. What I don't completely understand is that my ferritin plummeted from 66 to 10 in just a few weeks after the inflammation was cured - and I had to take iron tablets immediately after, although just a few weeks before there was no iron deficiency, and iron tablets had caused black stools. (!!)

I don't know if that helps your question flowergirl!
I also would like to know what 10 on the "anemia scale" means too (I was 9 the month before) - does everyone else get dizzy after lifting groceries/problem solving/just going about their day, or wake up in the morning feeling like they've just been exercising and can't get their breath?
I'm feeling worse than I was at 9 and I'm wondering if I don't have something else, or if I'm just poorly adapted to the anemia? I read about a girl who was still working a customer service job at 8.5, but has anyone been able to continue with academic work on anemia? I've had to quit my work because I was delivering such poor results.
Would be great to know your experiences..
