... So I got the test results back (or my parents did) -- they said one thing was low, but there's no sign of anemia. I found this surprising as I'm usually anemic (referencing past test results) and the symptoms (hair loss, difficulty concentrating, blue-purple nail beds, extreme fatigue) indicated otherwise.

I've had one surgery and am waiting to be scheduled for the other. I am meeting a new surgeon... (9 replies)
... Steph, sorry I did not make myself clear. My fingernails are very pale. The little white moons on the nails are too pale to see. I had a couple of people comment recently on how anemic I looked, which really shocked me. I have always been fair but I guess I must be paler now. I also have dark circles under my eyes. I am not sure what my fingernails are supposed to look... (9 replies)
