Could this be Anemia?

I've been having problems on and off for the last month or so with lightheadedness and nose bleeds. The lightheadedness was actualy closer to vertigo a few weeks ago. I went to see my dr and he put me back on Lexapro (which I had just gone off of) and the symptoms got better. Then over the last few days I've started getting light headed again. Eatting dosen't seem to help much nor does drinking lots of water. I've been getting nose bleeds as well. My dr told me that these two symptoms are not related and that the nose bleeds are nothing serious just most likely caused by allergies. We went out of town last week and I didn't get a nosebleed the entire time - so maybe it is allergies? But I still have the lightheadedness. I was anemic as a teen but I can't remember what it felt like.
