How is your ferritin level?

My ferritin level is at 15; my doctor says it should be between 50 and 70. The following symptoms which I got of the net are symptoms of anemia, and I got most of them. So, how do we know if it's the anemia or the peri that's giving us so many problems?


Impaired learning
Poor memory
Decreased attention span
Appetite loss
Difficulty swallowing
Joint soreness
Sores on skin
Hair loss
Sore or burning tongue
Brittle, flat, or spoon shaped nails
Longitudinal ridges on nails
Heart palpitations on exertion
Shortness of breath
Cold extremities
Decreased resistance to infection
Anemia (hypochromic, microcytic)
Numbness & tingling
Night sweats
Fragile bones
Growth impairment
Eye soreness
