Hello there,

I was diagnosed with mild anemia about a week and a half ago due to blood loss caused by a very long and heavy period. Prior to that diagnosis, I had been feeling a little less spry than normal and noticing ice cravings -- but nothing more severe than that. My doctor put me on iron supplements to counteract the blood loss.

Since I started taking the iron pills, my symptoms have grown worse. I'm tired, light-headed, and dizzy all the time. Even mild exercise makes my head pound. At first I attributed this to worsening anemia, given that I'm still bleeding. But now I'm wondering if I might be having a bad reaction to the supplements. My symptoms seem to be at their worst about an hour after I take one, and then lessen about two hours later. Is it possible/heard of for iron supplements to cause this reaction? Has anyone else experienced it? :/
