This seems to be an FAQ: if your ferritin is low but your hematocrit and hemoglobin are in the normal range, can this give you symptoms like fatigue?
Here is a study that says it may cause fatigue:
Also children with ADHD had lower ferritin than other children, without being anemic:

Young women who are iron deficient but not anemic, can think better after getting iron supplements:

Any other research on this subject, please share!
Interesting......I have low ferrtin 13, and low RBC 3.7 but low normal hemoglobin 11.7 and hematocrit at 35.5. My iron sat is 18%.

My neuro is the one that ran these tests, and I am told all is normal, and I need no treatment.

I have extreme fatique, loss of a great amount of hair, blurry vision, numbness and tingling too.

I am also dx with B12 was 308 a year ago.

I am dx with Multiple Sclerosis too.

Would anyone consider these numbers normal?
