This does look like iron deficiency anemia because your MCV, MCH and MCHC are all low. I'll bet your ferritin was on the bottom of the range. I would get your lab results sent to you so you can see for yourself. The question then is why are you so anemic? If you are on iron, you must be either losing iron somehow or not absorbing it well. In females, blood loss can be from heavy periods, or from the GI tract. Absorption issues are common in celiac disease, and some people have no symptoms other than anemia. I would ask to be checked for celiac disease, and since utterly exhausted, your thyroid should be checked too.
