none if this seems really serious, but it still feels like something isn't right with my body. i'm 20 and male btw.

anyway, yeah:

-thinness(anemia?), seemingly no matter how much or what i eat
-fast heart rate and metabolism
-dry thin hair, dandruff
-skin problems, especially on face. thin skin in general, small red dots all over face(not acne, just...little red specks. not that noticeable, but has lasted for years and its annoying), dry flaky skin around the front of my cheekbones. not itchy.
-vague stiffness and fatigue(worse in mornings)
-occasional anxiety attacks. not very severe, just once or twice every couple of weeks i suddenly feel very anxious for no apparent reason. if im with people i'll suddenly want to leave really badly.

the weird thing is i always try to eat well - meat, vegetables, fruit, grains, dairy, pretty much everything. i also don't drink caffeine, don't take any prescription drugs, and i smoke only occasionally. and i try to exercise when i can. oh and i was a vegetarian most of my life, i didnt start eating red meat until this last year.

anyway got any ideas?
