    Unhappy Sore breasts and taking ferrous sulfate

    I am taking 325mcgs of ferrous sulfate 3 times a day to get my iron stores up. My breasts are sore and swollen, pulse is a bit high, bloodpressure is good. I feel there is improvement.

    Just cannot figure out the sore breasts. Only time I have this problem is when taking ferrous sulfate. Hate to change iron brand because afraid it won't work then I would be in trouble.

    Am wondering if its fluid retention. I am postmeno and no periods, and 59 years old.

    Treatment for severe bloodloss. Went off iron after a month because of terrible side effects. Iron went down to 36, so took Profe that was not working at all for me.

    I believe that the iron might be starting to lower my thyroid hormones again. Just have to tough it out.LOL

    I believe someone else posted about this not to long ago. I had sore breasts really bad a few months ago. Not sure if there is a connection there, but it would sure be interesting to find out.
