You dont say whether or not youve been diagnosed with anemia or low ferritin. I felt that way when I was pregnant, but then again, I was VERY anemic. I felt faint, tired, etc. Then after the baby, I felt even worse with the brain fog,,,and the anxiety that I was goign to have the brain fog while talking to someone...vicious cycle chicken or the egg..

Anyway, I know what you mean about being scared to take something. I dont even drink caffeine because I am afraid it might make my heart beat too fast tand then i would be afraid..bla blah blah...

Anyway, my doc recommended the iron WHILE I was pregnant, and I was scared to take it (same reasons as you) and look what I did to myself. So sick, foggy, achey.etc. All I can say is that I am thankful my stupidity didnt hurt my baby...

Iron is just a mineral thats in a lot of food. It wont hurt you or make your heart beat fast. And if it does, it is probably your anxiety thinking the iron is doing something to you. I finally started taking it and had no side effects. Not even constipation...

Good luck and just take it...Oh, I even went so far as to buy iron cookware because I was so darn afraid to take the pill. Apparently you can get iron from cooking food in iron pots...but I am sure easier and healthier to just take the pill...
