Anemia, But What Kind??

Thursday, November 15, 2018

I went to the doctor around 8 weeks ago for my yearly check-up and my bloodwork showed I was anemic and a hypo-thyroid. The doc said he wanted me to follow up in 8 weeks and have my blood re-checked for the thyroid and anemia before he put me on any thyroid medicine and see if the change in iron tablet helps any. We changed me to Slow FE to see if that wouldn’t help any. I also take a Women’s One A Day multivitamin every morning as well. I went to the follow up last week. The results show my thyroid is now normal, but I am still severely anemic. He had some special test ran to check my actual vitamin levels everything checked out...EVEN MY IRON! This is not vitamin deficiency anemia they say, so what is it??? They are sending me to a hematologist to try to get to the bottom of it. All I can say is I am tired of being exhausted and ran down all the time. I just want to feel normal again. Currently I am just relying a lot on my diet for weight management because I just don’t have much energy. Please know that I am here lurking, but I am just having to take it a day at a time right now. I am trying to focus on rest and healing. ~Amanda
