As someone who has had an iron deficiency, fainting and fatigue are symptoms of iron deficiency but I don’t think muscle weakness is a common symptom, however I am NOT a qualified doctor. I strongly recommend you talk to your GP

If you have an iron deficiency it could turn into anaemia, you’ll need a blood test to rule it out, it’s better to be safe than sorry

Nah, iron deficiency can lead to anaemia! Honestly I recommend speaking to your doctor, get a blood test, talking about these things, because your symptoms are cause for concern, and your health is important!

it's very likely to be a passing thing. get tested but it will go away in a few weeks
