Anemia can cause most of your symptoms. Dizziness, headache, weakness, tiredness and more. Look it up.
I'm usually anemic, most recently from surgery for a broken ankle, and have a hard time getting it back to normal, 5 months so far and still anemic. I don't tolerate iron daily, and once a week isn't enough. Nausea can be a sign you are taking too much.
You have to take iron correctly. It doesn't make a whole lot of difference what kind of iron it is, but you have to take it with acid, like orange juice, not milk or anything that raises the pH of your stomach. Make sure you are eating a healthy diet too, getting the right vitamins, other nutrients. It's no good taking iron if you can't metabolize and use it.
Keep in touch.
