Last week I went to the ER with severe heart palpitations. I thought it was my thyroid needing an adjustment but that was fine. They kept me Sun, Mon and Tues. until 7pm. Ran all kinds of heart tests and determined it was not a heart issue but an anemia issue.

My dr. relayed the info to me- "you are grossly anemic". Placed me on iron 3 x a day and a multivitamin. She advised me on the routine fecal occult test which came back fine and advised me to see my GYN.

I saw my GYN Nurse practioner and she looked at my blood results and said I was low but not "grossly anemic". Kinda made me feel foolish though I was just repeating what dr. had said Still she did an exam and sent me for further ironblood tests and a pelvic ultrasound to rule out problems there.( will get results Mon)

I am 32, 3 kids, normal periods, easily fatigued but feeling a bit better the past 3 days compared to the exhaustion I had before. I would say I am "pretty tired" versus " completely exhausted" like I was.

Here are my numbers. Does anyone have an opinion? Is this just semantics?

Not sure how worried I should be. Thanks in advance!

white blood count 6.1
red blood count 4.31
hemo 10.9
hemocrit 33.1
MCV 76.7
MCH 25.4
