Hello dear...
Iron is necessary for the formation of Red Blood Cells...which carry Oxygen to all body tissues.
And sugar (glucose) serves as the source of energy for the body.
So...the symptoms mentioned by you have been caused by the low level of Iron & Sugar in your blood.
It will be better to take Iron preparations to improve your blood Iron levels.
Also keep a regular check of your blood pressure levels.
Other than that eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, avoid stress, get good sleep, think positive and stay happy.
Wishing you good health.
Thanks & take care.
