Possible to have low iron with no symptoms?

Posted , 1 user is following.

I was diagnosed with low iron 9 months ago. Was on oral supplements for 6 months, iron still low (13 to 19), prescribed iron shots (got infusions instead which I was not prepared for) for 5 weeks. I never had any symptoms related to low iron. How do I have low iron without having any symptoms? I have Raynaud's and my hands and feet are always cold. The last year and a half my fingertips have been bluish, but that was brushed off as normal Raynaud's.
