Hi there, I have been anemic for a long time and I will tell you that you have tell tale signs of being anemic. I was actually diagnosed because of headaches that wouldn't go away. simply being on iron pills will not help you. You should seek out a very good hematologist. sometimes the regular family drs will tell you that your b12 is in normal range and it is actually really low. for example, when my b12 is 245 it is in normal range, however i get really tired and my iron starts dropping, i get head aches and over all yuckyness. or for example if your "iron" is a 10 and normal is 12 to 15 I don't know what they are measuring, but normal ferritin is 40 and above. maybe your hemoglobin is at a 10 which is really low and yes can cause your symptoms. As for your feeling of being all over the place let me tell you this. My closest friend can tell when my iron is low every time and is always right on the money. How? because everytime we are on the phone I lose what we are talking about and forget what I am saying mid sentence. once that starts she goes are you going to check your iron or what? I feel like an old lady with dimentia. LOL please go to a hematologist. they can give you IV iron to get you going then put you on supplements. you need to be aggressive with treatment if you want to feel better.
