Does anemia cause dizziness?

Can you help me locate any research papers that either reinforce or refute the possibility that iron deficient anemia or alpha thalassemia could trigger a vertigo spell? It seems like my wife ends up experiencing vertigo every time her ferritin is low. Most hematologist and internal medicine folks tell me this is not the case, but there is a real strong correlation in her case.
