I get sore throats all of the time... is this worth a trip to the doc?

Lately, I seem to have at least one day every week in which I have a sore throat and generally feel under the weather. I take it easy that day and am usually back to normal the next, but I don't think it is normal to be getting sore throats so often. I eat well, take vitamins/fish oil and exercise, but I do know that I am getting very poor, broken sleep due to stress lately - maybe 5 or so hours - though I get good sleep some nights. Is this worth going to the doctor, or could poor sleep really make you feel bad this often?

What else should I ask my doctor tomorrow morning?

I'm anemic and have PCOS, and have been feeling increasingly crappy. I have been taking over the counter iron that includes zinc, vitamin c, and B vitamins (FabIron) for over a year; clearly, it is not enough. I have a doctor's appointment first thing tomorrow morning. What else should I ask my doctor, or ask her to do? [more inside]

Why did I faint or collapse last night?

I collapsed this morning. I know you're not my doctor and I know I need to see one, but I can't afford to unless it's immediately life-threatening. Can you help me figure out what might be wrong with me? [more inside]
