I am a four letter word and I was strong.

Sadly got reversed and now I am weak.

But... my former self is still inside of me.

You would only care if I'm inside of you.


What was I, and what am I now?

NORI, used to be IRON?

Iron is a strong metal, but nori tears easily.

But... my former self is still inside of me.

Nori contains iron, a nutrition fact that someone eating nori might care about.

A bit of a stretch, but are you

MEAN is a four letter word and shows up as a synonym for strong

Sadly got reversed and now I am weak.

ANAEMIC contains MEAN reversed and means weak

But... my former self is still inside of me.

MEAN is in ANAEMIC albeit reversed

You would only care if I'm inside of you.
