It is time for less iron now

I have been taking high dose iron for a month and started having symptoms of getting too much. Such as fluid retention, tired, hearing heartbeat on exertion(which could have something to do with suppressing thyroid). My doc doesn't know if iron suppresses thyroid. Blah!!!

So am taking 130mgs of elemental iron liquid ferrous sulfate now until end of December. Can't raise thyroid meds because if I stop the iron thyroid hormones will go up too quickly. Hopefully the less iron will do the trick.
