    Need help, feel like I'm dying!

    I have been anaemic since April and it's been slowly getting worse. My iron is currently 5 and my ferritin is 7. I had been taking 1 iron tablet for the last 6 weeks and my levels actually dropped. I have a problem with b12 and it was 260 so Dr gave me an injection and told me to take 3 high dose iron tablets a day with vit c.. I only managed four days.. In constant pain upset stomach and nausea. Went back today and he's sending me to a specialist for an iron infusion.
    My symptoms include daily all day headache, extreme exhaustion, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain( I have a history of pulmonary embolisms) numbness mainly in hands and feet, nausea, sore tongue... Any advice? Please!

    I'll just add ranges
    Iron 5 ( 9-39)
    Iron saturation 5% (20-?)
    Ferritin 7 (20-150)
