pain around some of my joints, fatigue, chills some nights, sweats, other nights, and headache, for a few days. what could this be? i also tried to give blood last week, and was told my iron was low.
According to one website all of those can be caused by low iron levels. Other sites focus more on symptoms such as fatigue, rapid heart beat and rapid shallow breathing.
Are you boosting your iron levels with high iron foods and/or iron supplements. Here some iron rich foods are.

If you have low iron (anemia) you should find out why. Anemia can be caused by blood loss within the body from ulcers or other problems. It can also be caused by heavy menstruation and other factors. You should check out what's going on with doctor.
I have just had a bone marrow test. I do not have cancer but my iron is low in my bone marrow but not low when a regular blood test is done. I have two weeks of feeling exhausted and my body aches and I have flu symstoms. At the same time I have little cyst-like balls in my neck, groin and under my arms that seem to get bigger when I'm feeling flu-like. Then for three days I feel like myself again then the cycle happens again. Doctors have not been able to give me an answer. Do you have some ideas as to what is wrong with me?
