Forty year old woman, four years post op hysterectomy. No periods, no bloood loss of any measure. Reasonably balanced diet with plenty of meat and kale chips. Started taking fancy Raw Food prenatal vitamins in November because cracks in mouth that wouldn't heal.

After over a year of severe insomnia, exhaustion, mouth sores, constant itchiness and RLS issues that made my husband wonder if I was swimming the English Channel, I went to my Dr last week. As I haven't had a period since 2012, I did not suspect any anemia. Dr. has done two CBC's, second one had even lower hemoglobin and hemotocrit levels.

(My last CBC's in 12-2014 showed a hemoglobin count of 14.4.)

Friday's test showed

hemoglobin 8.3
hemotocrit 27.1

RDW 17.9
MCHC 29.8
MCH 19.6
MCV 65.7
RBC 4.2
WBC 4.1
FERRITIN 3
IRON 13
IBC 505
IRON % SATURATION = 3
ANISOCYTOSIS +1
MICROCYTOSIS +1
POIKILOCYTOSIS +1
POLYCHROMASIA +1
HYPOCHROMASIA +2
OVALOCYTES +1

I know everyone is busy. I'm just wondering what on earth could make my red blood cells go so crazy? Any input, feedback would be appreciated. It would be nice not to have lusty ice feelings and 12 wake ups a night anymore.

THANK YOU!!
