i am a 17 year old female and need someones help. i had a blood test at my doctors because my hair was falling out. It revealed that my iron levels were 3mg when it should be 70mg. Ever since then i ave been taking iron tablets and iron that you put in a drink, i went for another blood test and my iron levels went up to 6mg. I am worried that somethign else is the matter. i am tired yet i cannot sleep and my sleep is disturbed. I feel exhausted so much that i can not even bare to walk to a shop which is only 5 mins away. When i get up i feel dizzy and my vison is impaired. i suffer migraines whcih i never had before. i cannot stand heat or cold. I sweat too much if it is quite hot and in winter my toes and fingures turn purple as do my lips. I am still losing my hair. I have been eating loads the past weeks and not put any weight on. i am also very weak ( i cannot lift a bag full of shopping.) I have lost all interest in sex and cannot concentrate.My immune system is very weak i seem to get everything thats going. I also have frequent urinary tract infections. Is there something else wrong?
