It causes me to have very restless legs. That and weird itching , both of which make me anxious. I have heard anxiety and confusion are both symptoms.
[QUOTE=september2015;5383412]Thanks a lot for responding, Cristi. That does explain my situation. I am taking iron supplements but they are giving me side effects. Will change brands and take lower doses and hopefully that would help, though it would be a slow road to recovery.[/QUOTE]

I can't tolerate many kinds of Iron also and have low ferritin. I have all the symptoms you mentioned including anxiety. Is there any supplement that is working for you ?

Hi Snowbell

I just found that I am also allergic to B12 injections based on cobalmin, so am not taking any iron supplement for now. Am seeing another internist today and see what he has to say. Someone on another thread asked to try the ferritin iron (rather than ferrous type) as that is absorbed less in the body (which I assume will give less reaction or side effects). Have you tried any liquid iron? If you find out something that suits you, please do let me know too. I live in a small caribbean island, so we don't have as many varieties and brands of supplements as others in US or other big countries would have access to.
