Dizziness, fever, weakness, headache, abdominal cramps, low BP, on IUD. Anemia or B12 deficiency?

Im feeling pretty dizzy, a little feverish, weak, headache , like I am going to faint, a bit of body aches, some abdominal cramps . Very strange. I had a bit of a headache when I woke up today, then went on a long run on the beach, got home and starting feeling worse, also a bit cold. I had the flu from the 3rd to the 16th but been better most of last week. I am thinking maybe anemia and b12 deficiency, which I know I have. I also have low blood pressure. Im super active, 33, in pretty good shape, eat well, etc. It s kind of scaring me and thinking about going to urgent care. I also have an IUD (strings are still in place but they are pretty far back- sis is a nurse and thinks it could possibly be something to look into). Ugh.. thanks in advance. Jenn

Hi Jenn,
You haven't mentioned your haemoglobin levels... these symptoms you describe could be generalised flu or ... if you also have abdominal pain , it could be signs of pelvic infection... have u checked your IUD since it was inserted ? do you hv foul smelling vaginal discharge also...? does your urination hurt...? let me know these few things and v can guide you further...when was your last menses...?
