Q: Hi ,
i have been suffering from aneamia for a long while with out knowing . It was my mum who picked up on the signs , not being able to get out of bed , because of weakness and tiredness, not acting myself , pale skin and i losed quite abit of weight during this period . So i never went to the doctors as i started taking the iron tablets and they worked it really picked me up with in a few days i was back to my normal self . Then a few months ago i forgot to take them for about a month and i got really bad again , i have been taking them non stop for the last month but this time they dont to seem to making much of a difference im still feling constantly tired and as if my body cant bring it self to work properly , i just dont feel myself nor any energy. Is there a chance its got worst or is it not aneamia ?
