Thinking I was anaemic, I took iron supplements for the last two days (spatone).

Now I have really achey hip pain. Do you think this is caused by the iron supplement?

Is it serious? Feeling scared!

I'm going to stop taking them. Though I've definitely got more energy now. I didn't want to go to the GP because they were very reluctant to listen to me last time when I took DD

don't think so. in any case, spatone is not a very strong iron Supplement.

I think anaemia can cause hip/leg pain.

Two days on Spatone is going to do bugger all to your iron levels, sorry. If the hip pain is new, monitor it for a while and if it doesn't settle or gets worse within a couple of weeks to a month I'd think about GP.
