Just wondering what are the symptoms of having low iron?

I unfortunately suffer from low iron frequently. My symptoms are extreme fatigue, not sleepy but very weak. My hair will also start to break and looking at me, when deficient eveyone can tell. I appear very pale and washed out. The best thing to do is go to your doc and ask for serum ferritin test or transferrin level. They can test and give you a prescription for iron supplements. I also have to really watch my iron intake in foods, eating plenty of meat, poultry, green vegs....hope this helps

B, I have also heard that if you take a gold ring and mark your face if it marks your face black it means u have low iron. My gold ring(it's really gold LOL) turns my finger black. I'm extremely tired, but not having much bleeding. My last normal period was January. My urine test came back neg but have many symptoms
