Hi Everyone,

About 3 months ago I was feeling exhausted, dizzy, breathless, getting headaches, feeling anxious & my joints were achey. I had my doc test my ferritin as my Mom's tends to be very low and mine was 16. Doc put me on iron (ferrosequal) and 3 months later it went up to 41.

However, after being super busy & overwhelmed during the month of December for Xmas and having a heavy period I have started to have symptoms again. I have barely been able to do anything for 2 weeks. I could have slept all day & all night the first week after Xmas.

I am starting to wonder if there is more going on here. Could I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? For the past few years I am down for the count for about a month after Xmas. I also become extremely exhausted for days (even weeks) after exercise. How can I tell the difference between a ferritin problem and CFS?
