Is it because of Iron Deficiency?

About 3 months ago I started to feel shakes, like i was going to faint, head pressure, light headed, sick when going out places. It then started when i was at home, just watching tv and sitting down, so I went to the doctors and they said that it sounded like i was deficient in something. I had a set of blood tests done and it came back that I am very low on iron and vitamin D. For the last 2 months I have been taking supplement tablets for this. However since I have been to the doctors I have been feeling worse and anxiety has been really bad. But I have started feeling really weird, like i don't belong and the world isn't real. I don't know what to do or who to trust.. I don't want to feel this way forever. It just doesn't feel right and feels like somethings missing. Is this derealization or depersonalization? Is it because of my iron deficiency? I am only 21 and have never felt like this before. I feel a bit better just before i go to sleep, but then when i wake up i feel so bad and sad and just feels so heavy on me, i don't know which way to turn.

Lyme and Babesia. I am treating this now. Find a Lyme Literate Doctor! Know that the tests aren't great, both are clinical diagnoses. Dr Horowitz has a great book about this. I went to multiple Drs. before one figured it out. You will want to start treatment soon, as currently I can't even drive due to the building symptoms. Babesia causes anemia.


Hello :)

I've just been told I've got low b12 ( iron).

I've been prescribed b12 tablets and have to take them for 3mths.

I do feel so much better now :) xx


Thanks for your replies. I think the doctor said that my b12 was fine. I've been taking my iron tablets for just under 3 months and vitamin d tablets around 2 months. Will have another blood test to see how it's going and see if its going up or not. So do you think its to do with my low iron?
