The Doctor Problem
Go into just about every doctor's office and tell the doctor about your symptoms. The following should happen:
Doc: Hmm, let's see if we can figure out what causes these problems. We will first make sure that this is not a simple nutritional deficiency before moving on.

Low levels of iron and B6 can lead to low levels of serotonin, and low levels of serotonin can trigger anxiety, even panic attacks.
Iron deficiency is difficult and sometimes you need a megadose supplement to bring the levels back to normal, especially for women. (Men rarely need iron supplements.) For details, see "The Missing element in female fitness ".
