I have been told I am anemic (hgb 10)and am on iron. I have a burning pain under my breast bone above my belly button. Could the iron be causing this?

In brief: Very unlikely

You need to see your provider to evaluate this (new?) pain symptom. It will be very unlikely to be related in any way to either the anemia or the iron supplement.
But do find out and ask about the possible effects of any treatment. It will improve your response and relieve your worries. Best wishes.
