My ferritin is 5 = essentially I have zero iron stores. Anyone else have this and what was done about it?

Yikes! Normal range is 12-150! Your Dr should be getting you some iron supplements, you probably have anemia! Iron is necessary for healthy blood, so you probably don't feel too great.

While waiting for the Dr, you might consider iron-rich foods - although I suspect a prescription iron supplement is in your near future.
