Christine,

Welcome to the boards. The fact that your iron stores are low is concerning, but as I've said a lot of times in this area on the board, has the doctor figured out WHY you have low iron stores? Usually low iron in N. America comes from chronic bleeding. In young women, the most common cause is heavy periods, and in older people it's usually chronic blood loss from the GI tract including from polyps, ulcers tumours and the like.

You mention you have heartburn. Have you had a lot of problems with heartburn? Do you take NSAID medications? Have you ever been evaluated for inflammation or ulceration of your upper gastrointestinal tract?

The symptoms you mention including palpitations can definitely be from iron deficiency usually when there is significant anemia associated with it.
