I'm not too familiar with iron deficiencies, but I know there are lots of deficiencies that contribute to anxiety. For example I had a vitamin B-12 and D deficiency and found out that those contribute to mood. So now I regularly take vitamins and try to eat foods rich in those vitamins to assist. Been feeling better, but I've also been doing a lot of other stuff to help so it could be a combination of everything or the taking care myself. Not sure if this helps but hopefully you find out if your iron deficiency is contributing to your anxiety.
