What the hell is wrong with me?

I'm dizzy all the time. I literally was standing at the office the other day and had to hold onto the counter to keep from falling backwards. I get migraines daily. NOTHING seems to take them away. And beyond everything else, i'm ALWAYS tired. I work in a medical office and have spoken to all the doctors. They have no answers. My PCP has had CT scans, MRIs, and even sent me to a neuro and no one knows what is wrong with me. I had blood work done 2 months ago and nothing was abnormal at all. I know you ladies arent doctors, but has anyone experieced something similar?

I had these problems when they found out I have iron-based anemia...

 I thought it was low blood sugar too, but i pack chocolate, mints, and little candies to try to fix it, and that didnt help either. I've tried drinking water, caffeine, tea and everything as well.

Thanks for trying though.

my iron used to be too low. I take iron 3 times daily.. Could it be too much for my body maybe?

It could be either too much, or still not enough, depending on if you are getting iron anywhere else in your diet. I would ask my doctor exactly what dosage I should be taking based on blood test results if I were you.

a friend of my just had the same problems.  They figured out she wasn't sleeping well at night (don't know more)  and told her to a CPAP machine nightly and to stop drinking soft drinks. 


She went and had sleep studies done in 2 seperate occasions to determine this.
