The anemia could definitely cause fatigue, pallor, cold hands and feet, and dizziness and fast pulse with exertion. The question is, why are you anemic and your iron levels so low? Usually it is caused by diet low in iron, heavy periods or poor absorption. I would wonder if you have an absorptiom problem associated with a gluten intolerance. Less likely, it may be that your red cells are being destroyed by antibodies. I would ask for tests for celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and a retic count and Coombs test to check for destruction. You should be on iron supplement as well, daily, for 3-4 months while the cause is being sought.
