Thanks for the replies!
At this point, I miss my usual constipation (been like that for years). It's been 3 weeks now of the runs and really foul flatulence since starting the iron supplements. Sorry for being so TMI. Don't know how else to express this. No stomach cramps. That would just be an added bonus. :P
I have one more week's worth left of this iron supplement and then I'm going to be starting the "easy iron". I've heard it's easily absorbable and doesn't cause nearly the amount of side effects as other iron supplements. Will let you know how it goes.
Getting a CBC done this week. Haven't had one done since March. Since my period just started (oh joy!) I pretty much expect to break even on the test results. Also have appts with other drs on Aug 15th, so should have some answers after that.
