Post NOSEBLEEDS & ANEMIA ?

DOES ANEMIA CAUSE NOSEBLEEDS?
I HAVE ALWAYS HAD LOW IRON , EVEN TOOK SHOTS WHEN I WAS 3, I AM NOW 35.
ALWAYS DIZZY, FEELING WEAK,SHAKY,AND AS IF MY ARMS MIGHT FALL OFF, MY TOUNGE GETS REALLY SORE AND CRACKED,
CAN'T GET ENOUGH SLEEP. AND NOW MY NOSE IS BLEEDING AT LEAST EVERY DAY.THE LAST TIME MY HEMOGLOBIN WAS CHECKED IT WAS 8,ALSO LOW IN ZINC AND FOLIC ACID.
IF ANYONE CAN TELL ME IF THIS CAN CAUSE NOSEBLEEDS ALSO I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT.
OH BY THE WAY I AM AWAKENED AT NIGHT WITH THE FEELING THAT I CAN'T GET MY BREATH.

Hello, all your symptoms can be anemia. I have been anemic on and off for years. I got this way after having my thyroid problems. The tongue sores and problems can be anemia. Does your tongue feel swollen? I have had nose bleeds from anemia but I was very, very anemic when that happened. Rapid heartbeat and the feeling of breathlessness can also be anemia. But it could all be something else too. You need to get your blood drawn and tested. Don't wait do it now.
If you need iron it will take a long time to feel normal. It could take several months. Get going.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR REPLY. I HAVEN'T WENT TO THE DOCTOR YET,I HAVE HAD SO MANY PROBLEMS WITH ANEMIA BEFORE, I FIGURED THIS WAS WHAT WAS GOING ON. I BOUGHT OVER THE COUNTER IRON AND FOLIC ACID,I HAVE TAKEN THEM FOR ALMOST A WEEK AND SO FAR I HAVE A LITTLE MORE ENERGY AND HAVEN'T HAD A NOSE BLEED SINCE I SRARTED THESE. I PLAN ON GOING AND GETTING THE COUNT DONE THOUGH HOPEFULLY THIS WEEK. MY TOUNGE DOESN'T FEEL SWOLLEN, BUT IT GETS REALLY SORE AND SEEMS TO CRACK DOWN THE MIDDLE. MY GUMS ARE WHITE LOOKING AND WHEN I PULL MY LOWER EYE LIDS DOWN AND CHECK THEY ARE ALMOST COMPLETELY WHITE.
