Low iron will cause anemia and this will cause lethargia, insomnia, a general feeling of malaise, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, poor circulation and headaches. A low folic acid count can have similiar symptoms and chronic pain and weakness in the legs. Consult your doctor for a blood test, to determine your iron and folic acid levels.
