For months I've been suffering with chest discomfort, a sort of breathlessness and various other symptoms. I was diagnosed with low iron levels and have been taking iron tablets for a couple of weeks now. However, I think my breathing has gotten worse since on them. I feel as though I can breathe, just like I can't take in a sufficient amount of air and I'm feeling quite dizzy and groggy constantly. Some of my other symptoms are headaches, nasal congestion, going to the toilet a lot more, indigestion/burping and difficulty sleeping. I suffer with anxiety (not helping the illness as I have panic attacks a lot currently) and also the common side effects of the iron tablets (diahorrea, black stools etc). I was just wondering whether the iron tablets are meant to be given more time to work or if these tablets are making me worse since my breathing has become a lot worse in my mind. I've listed my other symptoms in case there might be another underlying problem. Any help or advice would be appreciated thank you. I'm so groggy and dizzy and my chest is so uncomfortable it's making my life miserable.
