Why back/neck pain with iron deficiency?

My ferritin is 5 but my CBC is normal so I'm iron deficient but not anemic. Anyway, my symptoms include: headaches, fatigue, dizziness, irritability, back and neck pain and in general I feel like the puppet master is playing a very cruel trick on me

All of my symptoms are bothersome and at times debilitating but the back pain seems to be the one having the worst effect on my quality of life the past week or so. I feel like someone has my spine in a vice and no amount of stretching, yoga, exercise, rest, chiropractic adjustments, massages, or medications is making it better.

So I've been reading the boards and I see a lot of others complain of back and neck pain too but I'm curious why.

Any theories on this?
