Could I have anemia? I am feeling very weak, aching limbs, headaches, sores in my mouth, always pale, covered in bruises and cold hands and feet etc.
I was going to take some iron even though my dr was not concerned but don't want to take anything I shouldn't and end up feeling worse. I have been feeling ill since the birth of my child 3 years ago.
If anyone could help me it would be much appreciated.
