as we can see in your case you already know that you are suffering from iron deficiency anemia.
you have not mentioned how severe it is.
like for Egs in very severe cases it can lead to an identity called as Plummer Vinson syndrome. in which it can present in slight similar symptoms as you are having.
so it is better to take this at priority to rule out anything serious and show yourself to your doctor.
