Hi Emily, seeing the bloodwork helps. Your red cells are down enough to have you feeling pretty loagy…definitely in the anemic zone. Your white blood cell count is normal with the lymphocytes a little elevated, which could indicate you’re fighting inflammation or a little infection. But nothing eye-brow raising like I expected to see. So that’s positive. It will be interesting to see what your next set of numbers are. The hematologist will most likely order a few more blood tests to narrow down the cause of the low red count.
Before you see your new doctor, try to write down when your symptoms started and if there was anything you remember before hand. Such as, was it after an illness or viral infection.
Have you experienced any blood loss? Abnormal period?
Did you have covid?
Well thats good to hear. August of 2021 during a csection I hemorrhaged and lost alot of blood and had to get a blood transfusion in the hospital. Other than that, no blood loss, no abnormal period, and no covid.
