No Ebola: You do not have Ebola. It is not feasible to say if you are anemic. Given your periodic blood loss and lack of iron and B12 in your diet, you may well be anemic. It would be prudent to see your doctor. In the mean time take oral iron supplement and a multivitamin with B12.

B12 is safe. Take a multivitamin with folic acid and B12. Also take iron supplement.
