I assume your doctor hasn't felt concerned.
Might be anemia, taking iron only helps if there's a deficiency. Have you tried vitamin B12? Sometimes taking more than the recommended dosage is required (there are actually prescription strength B12's).
Some people who are becoming hypoglycemic feel weak...adding extra protein to each meal would help if that's it.
