I started taking liquid iron a few days ago and a few things have changed . First late Friday my output is pure liquid and I am eating well , usually 3-4 times a day it’s thicker not liquid like now . And second I stopped passing mucus out of the back door I usually have the discharge 5-6 times a day ,, both normal for me . And now I am sitting up north at our cottage and I get a server pain where I can’t movd in my butt. I have never felt intense pain it only lasted a few mins now it’s slowly subsided yet I still fell an ache .
Could it be the iron ?
Taking iron because my hemoglobin is 100 ( better then 68 were I was a few months ago ) and my ferrtin is 8 which is extremely low.
