Why am I feeling weaker after 3 days of donating blood ?

Last week, my blood levels were high due to taking iron supplements. So 3 days ago, I donated blood. Doctors said I was supposed to feel better but I'm feeling weaker than when I had high blood levels

  • You recover completely from giving blood after about 2 - 3 hours.  If you were anaemic, they wouldn't have taken your blood.  I suspect you feel weak because of anxiety.  Go and take a brisk walk.
