Hi everybody,
I am so stressed over the fact that I was diagnosed with borderline anemia about a year And a half ago. I had a colonoscopy to rule out that that was the cause of the anemia. Colonoscopy was ok. Mild diverticulosis. I might say I am 60 years old. I have been going thru a very stressful time with what I believe is sciatica and it really has me depressed for 2 and a half months, it literally has me crippled at times. My worry is that because I'm so stressed I have been losing my appetite and my ankles and lower part of my legs feel stiff and tight like I'm retaining fluid. I did one of those home anemia tests a few weeks ago and the results looked like at about 11 hgb. But I'm so obsessed that a couple of weeks after that I did another one and it was a little lower, like 10.3. I'm always asking my hubby if I look pale to him and he says if I did he would tell me, but of course i can't see the color. I'm faired skin to begin with. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some insight to how I feel which is totally miserable. I don't get headaches or shortness of breath.

Back in !998 I was having terrible headaches and couldn't walk to the bathroom without my heart pounding, thats not happening.

Thank you for any responses. Sorry for the long Post but I needed to vent.
