I just went for my annual physical b/c the pain and exhaustion had become too much. Only part of my tests came back so far and I have severe anemia! It turns out that the day I went in to get the results, I also had a fever and ear and sinus infection. The doctor could not believe I was functioning so well (I was at work). Anyway, I just thought I'd share this to remind everyone to get checked and not to assume everything is Fibro. I am on prescription iron pills and on a high protein/ iron rich diet, which I was not on before. The antibiotics thought are wreaking havoc in my system.
