And my doctor asked me if I might be depressed too because she couldn't believe that I had symptoms of anemia with only "borderline" results.

I told her if I continued to be exhausted, dizzy, cloudy, with heart palpitations and unable to function much longer I would become depressed.

Why do they think everyone is depressed? Or do they just come up with a quick diagnosis so they can prescribe something and send us on our way?

My original diagnosis for having these symptoms was "dehydration" because I had a dry tongue. I was sent home with pedialyte to cure my symptoms - not iron. Now I know that a dry mouth is a symptom of anemia. Why don't they know that?

Another example of why we need to be educated about our own health.
