hello. welcome to HCM.
Anemia of any form will lead to the symptoms that you are having. So for getting relief, it is important to correctly diagnose the cause and anemia first.
It is important to go in for complete hematological work up like
Iron studies,
Vitamin B12 and folate levels
Peripheral smear.
Based on results of these investigations, you need to have further work up if needed... like hemolytic work up, work up for uncommon anemias, etc.
HEMATOLOGIST is the person you must visit.
Hope this helps.
