The only way to know for sure if you're anemic is to make an appointment with your doctor. They'll do a physical exam, ask some questions, and usually draw a little blood. It's quick and relatively painless. They usually just prick your finger and analyze a drop of blood. It can be done in the doctor's office within a few minutes.
In most cases, it can be treated fairly easily. They'll usually give you a list of iron-rich foods to include in your diet. I was anemic earlier this year, but it was easily treated by folowing the diet the doctor recommended. More severe cases may required medication and sometimes blood transfusions.
