I’ve been diagnosed with anemia?

hello I’ve recently been diagnosed with anemia , and due to a heavy period its been effecting me more. I have been taking the tablets given to me , however I have recently started to feel very ill and nausea even when sitting , my arms and legs feel very strange and ache . I have a slight odd feeling in my chest , I feel like a zombie all I want to do is lay in bed , I have no idea what to do , surely my tablets should be preventing this ?

Iron supplements should solve the problems but it will take up to 6 month , you can notice improvement after 2 weeks, also I recommend full blood electrolytes test + TSH, t4
Good Luck

this is due to severe anemia.
you should get complete blood count to check for hemoglobin levels.
start on hematinic tablets.
for faster recovery,ferrium injections are available.

I need to know if you have any other symptoms like diarrhea or constipatiin!?
Sometimes it can be due to the anaemia itself,sometimes it could be the tablets causing GI problems..
I would recommend taking injectable iron supplement as faster and better choice.
