About 2 years ago (I'm 14 now), I was diagnosed Anemic and they put me on an Iron mixture that I was supposed to take twice daily, but after a few months forgot, and my Mom forgot too. I figured it wasn't that big of a problem, because I was only slightly anemic, but recently things have gotten worse but I'm not sure if it's my anemia or not.

Well nowadays if I stand up, quick or slow, I get lightheaded and my vision goes completely black for a few seconds, before it clears and it feels like I have a headache. I get tired alot, a few minutes exercise and I can hardly breathe. The other day, I hit my knee of the car door, and I felt extremely nauseous and lightheaded, is this normal?

Can anemia sort itself out after a few years, if I was only slightly anemic? I'm worried that because I haven't taken my medicine in a while that it might have got worse. I would go to the doctor but I'm deathly scared of needles, and I want to avoid taking another blood test. So is this related to anemia, or is it more likely that I'm overreacting?

PS: Can Anemia cause weightloss or cause me not to put on weight, because no matter how much I eat, I stay at 80 pounds!

Thank you.
