urticria Iron pills anxiety!!!

I found this page by luck and im glad i have as really need some help in clearing up this problem if anyone is able,
I have had anixety panic attacks for over 9 years tried different meds and none have helped some made it worse, now im trying hypnosis to help this, unfortunatley the reason to most of my attacks are taking meds as i do seem to be allergic to them.
Im also anemic and was put on ferrous sulphate 9 weeks ago 200mg three times a day.
about 10 weeks ago i started having a few itchy red spots on my ankle which i dont a antihistmine for and it went away, after 2 weeks the itchy rash spread to all my leg and thigh and arms, very itchy and burning, i went to my doctors who gave me steroids and told me to continue to take antihistimine, it got it under control then came back with worse and my knees were really in pain it was hard to walk my ankles and feet were swollen and my legs were twice there size. the rash was now bright red looked like blood and lasted all day and night and when they faded new ones would appear, the old ones looked like bruises.
i had to go to A&E at 3 in the morning one day as it woke me from sleep and i was covered in them and the burning was unbearable i wanted to just cut my legs off.
They gave me prition and steroids through the vein, they took a blood test and said they coulnt find a reason. They let me out 8.00am thing is by 8pm that night i was covered again so went back to my doctors he said to stop taking my iron tablets as he thinks this my be the cure, they all went in three days, i was so happy but unfortunately there back and im only drinking water as a drink and trying to watch what i eat. the pain is back in my knees and my legs are so burning. I been off my iron pills for over 2 weeks so whats going on.
please help if you can as not coping!!!
