hi
there seems to be something wrong with your iron metabolism.
Get a bone marrow examination done.
Consult a hematologist.
Keep taking iron and vitamin supplements.
thanks

In my opinion you should get a s.ferritin,HB electrophoresis, and if nothing showed up ..get a bone marrow exam..a hematologist can help you better than a aGP ..

Hi
Do a Transglutaminase Antibodies (tTG-IgA) to check for celiac disease , do a CBC test to confirm it is iron related first
Good Luck
