    Still tired?

    Ok i am new to all this. I have always been told i have been boarderline anemic since at least 16 when i started donating blood. Recently i was feeling exhausted (and i am normally very energetic) headaches and dizzy as well as other issues. Like pale skin, cold hands and feet, bruising easiky and my memory is shot. I started asking my doctor if this could be iron related. She had my lads drawn on a monday and by friday i had seen a hemotoligist and had my first infusion. They said i was severely low. The level that they normally check when giving blood was 11.5 but what ever the other levels are were what was low. One was a 3 and the other was 8%. I dont know exactly what this means. The following monday i had my second infusion and an appointment schedule with an OB to discuss removing my uterus or an ablasion. After the first infusion i was tired and after the 2nd still tired and a little sick. About Wednesday that week i felt pretty normal. Its now sunday and i feel like crap again. Tired dizzy and headache. I have been taking b12 and high potency slow release iron daily. How long does it take to feel better? What is wrong with me? What can i do to feel better? What questions should i be asking my doctors? What tests should they be running? They did give me papers for another lab this month which i will do after my OB appointment on tuesday.
