I can relate. I have the same exact problems to the "T" as you do. Iron is supposed to constipate and I always worried I was one of the odd because it does just the exact opposite. For the last 8 months I have had the nasty "D" word, nonstop. It's horrid. I have never been checked for IBS because iron can cause people to have Diarrhea rather then constipate them. I dread it and I hate it but what can you do? I don't like what being anemic does to my body so I take the pill and deal with it.

I just recently switched to a slow release iron hoping that would ease up on the effects of iron. Your body can only absorb so much iron at a time anyways so I figured a slower release would give me more or at least my body would be absorbing more of it as it's not all hitting me at once. Maybe it's something you might want to look into.

So to answer your question, yes I'm in the same boat. /wave.
