What?: How do you know you have 1) iron deficiency or 2) anemia without being tested? Testing is simple. If there are symptoms of fatigue that may not (and likely is not) from anemia but rather other causes. Broken blood vessels are not related to anemia.

Spots vessels: Spots of broken blood vessels are not a symptom of iron deficiency or iron deficiency anemia.
