I agree that weakness and tiredness can be part of the anemia presentation. Bodyache needs some other explanation.
Do you have heavy periods or reasons to be anemic?
Did your symptoms appear after that? Too heavy period can cause anemia.
Yes, worth investigating. A blood work would be able to identify the anemia and its type. A blood loss or hemorrhagic anemia has a typical picture in the blood work. I would also advice to get an ultrasound of the abdomen done to know the cause of heavy bleeding. Hormonal disorder of ovaries and thyroid can also cause heavy periods so a blood work for investigating them would be prudent. These hormonal disorders can be responsible for the flu like symptoms and bodyache.
