Anybody have any thoughts

First, one blood test doesn't tell a story.  It tells what you were like at that moment.  Maybe at another moment you would have tested normally.  If you were significantly low on iron, it should show in fatigue and weakness.  One easy way to test it is to take a supplement called Herbal Iron by Floradix, a very absorbable plant source of iron.  And try eating more green foods such as parsley and dandelion greens and watercress, which are high in easily absorbed iron, as are beets and other foods.
