Could I be anemic? Or is it something else?

My doctor says I have healthy blood but everytime I stand up even if its slowly i get lightheaded and start to black out. I have extremely cold hands and feet. My circulation is so bad when I text my thumbs turn to ice and the last time i went to the doctor the nurse had to warm up my hand, prick 2 of my fingers and hold my hand to the ground to get any blood. Im tired and irratable all the time and I can't ever focus in school. If it helps, i exercise alot and I skip about 2 meals a day which I know can cause iron diffenciency. Also not to be gross but I have constipation problems sometimes.

Could it be anemia that the doctor hasn't noticed or is there something else wrong?

If you exercise a lot and skip two meals a day I would say you have an eating disorder that the doctor failed to notice.

Have they checked your blood pressure to make sure it's not running too low? I have a friend who has many of those symptoms and her blood pressure is too low. It runs about 90/60.

A doctor did your blood work. You do NOT have anemia. Your symptoms are due to your poor eating habits.
