Oh no Stacey!! That is not right!
Something you can try . . . if you get your labs done outside of your doctor's office, take the lab slip and write something down near the bottom, like this

That will indicate to the lab to send you a courtesy copy of the lab results.
Sometimes this works for me and sometimes it doesn't . . . not sure why. . . but its great when it works.
If the iron bothers you, you can try a brand called SLOW-FE. It enters the body more gently and helped me out a great deal when I had to take three iron pills a day for several months.
I hope this helps.
