It sounds like you have low blood counts and are having symptoms consistent with this. You may want to discuss either a blood transfusion or iron by an IV to boost your blood counts with your doctor. If you are concerned enough to ask the question of whether you should drive, you should probably wait until your blood counts improve or drive with someone to else in the passenger seat.
