You certainly want to see a doctor if your low iron levels are accompanied by dark urine or black and tarry fecal matter. Those symptoms could indicate internal bleeding which could be caused by ulcers, internal injuries, or cancer, among other serious things. If your iron levels are too high, then stop any iron supplements and remove some foods with high levels of iron from your diet.
