Patient : I was doing some research on anemia and believe I may be anemic. I have a lot of symptoms like: include tiredness, fatigue, shortness of breath, irritability, paleness and difficulty concentrating. I was wondering if there was another way to test for it without having blood taken. I have an extreme fear of needles and blood and get really bad anxiety when around them, so is there an alternative to testing for it?
