Second opinion] how much serving of iron is recommended?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

After having some iron this morning I felt a lot of pressure in my head and underneath my cheeks or smile lines/glands. I had about 3 servings of iron this morning.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I have only noticed after each time I have foods iron rich. I am all natural , no meds and mostly raw foods.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My family has heart irregularity history that is all. I had about 3 servings of iron this morning.

You opted out earlier, but just wanted to say that the pain in your cheeks can often be due to sinusitis or allergies.

If you have been sneezing, had nasal drainage, or nasal congestion that could all point towards sinusitis rather than the iron issue. Hope that helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
