I already posted under "Low Iron..." but thought I would re-title. I am 51 and perimenopausal. After a few days of mouth/tongue burning, sore gums, sensitive teeth (accomp'd by difficulty sleeping, short of breath, fatigue) AND having just tapered off a period of nearly three weeks(!), I plugged in my symptoms on WebMD and was surprised to find low iron as a possible reason for my symptoms. It all made sense. I immediately popped my ignored muti-vitamin and went out for steak with my husband (really). If my symptoms don't improve over the week-end, I will see my MD. Anyone else out there with similar symptoms?View Thread
