thanks for your query
i can feel your concerns
lethargy,weakness and aches & pains in body are feature of anaemia
i advice you to consult your haematologist to establish the cause of anaemia and then treat accordingly
if it is iron deficiency anaemia,you can use oral iron preparations and need to improve your diet
you seems to have vitamin deficienccy as should use multivamin tablet after consulting your doctor

hope it helps
