Thank you for visiting NetWellness! While it is difficult to specifically address a clinical question in this forum, this could very well be iron deficiency (no iron stores) without anemia, since you have enough iron to have a normal hemoglobin. However, with a normal hemoglobin, I don't think this explains your symptoms of fatigue. I encourage you to follow up with your physician to find out other reasons why you may be so fatigued.
