I had very bad light headedness, taking couple steps made me feel dizzy...this went on for almost a month, now I am tiny better but has the same symptoms. When I went to the doctor she said I have little bit of anemia and didn't find anything with my blood work....maybe I should do a head MRI.

Here is my blood work..

Ferritin low 5 ng/ mL
Iron saturation low 9%
Hemoglobin low 11.1 g/dl
MCV low 76.1 fL
MCH low 24.3 pg
MCHC low 31.9 g/dL
RDW high 17.4
Platelets normal 272
WBC normal 4.6
RBC normal 4.55

Lymphocytes high 48.8
TSH normal .80

I have been anemic for a while but these days I have lost interest in anything, irritated by kids, always tired and complaining. I usually can't take iron supplements due to irritation in stomach but I wanted to try this time. It made me nauseous, acid reflux, heart burn etc. On top of all these I get migraine every other day.

Any advice appreciated...
