I was suffering so many different things: headache, dizziness, anxiety, depression, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, feeling cold, just overall feeling of being ill. I suffered all these symptoms for three months each and every day. I decided to take my blood test and realized I am iron deficient. my iron levels were borderline low. I started to take iron and began to feel better. now I'm on iron therapy. been on it for 2 months all symptoms have subsided except I still feel a bit lightheaded. please tell me that the lightheadedness will subside as well.

No Dairy,Fruits and Vegetables
