Scared to know ...
Aug 9, 2017
Approx 2 to 3 yes ago, I went to a walk in clinic for chronic lower back pain. As I needed to get a referral for a pain Dr. When they called me the next to tell me that they already received my test tesults and would like me to go to the emergency room for a blood transfusion. I was told my results would take till Monday or Tuesday to come in, but due to my blood results they had them back in less than 24 hrs. I don't leave my records in front of me but I do remember that my iron levels (as a percentage was only 2%) and my blood levels, I can't remember the exact codes used, but a good number for a woman my age, height, and weight, was a 14. 7. When my blood was done, it read a 5.1. I went to the walk in clinic to pick up my results to take with me to the hospital, I suddenly couldn't not breathe, everything was becoming blurry and just pure exhaustion. I now know the symptoms of my anemia but I don't feel any different then I have for the last 20 years. As I did not feel anything different then, when it was so bad, they said I could have died. I was put into the hospital for several days while they ran tests. My blood pressure was very low also and could not find any reason for it to be that low. After multiple test with nothing being found I decided to check myself out. The only test not done was the colonoscopy. My aunt died of colon cancer at 31 years old. I recently (about 6 months ago) went to the er for not feeling well. They said my blood level was still about a 9 so I was in good shape and didn't need to worry. Should I be worried? I live in a different state then where I was diagnosed and have not found a Dr yet. I am afraid they are going to tell me its something they can't fix. What to do...
