[QUOTE=FLFLOWERGIRL;3219553]Christine--Isn't it the MCV that indicates the smaller blood cells? Mine was 65Low when I was DX'ed. Now my MCV is 73.1 still low and I am no longer anemic. I'm not sure if this is the right Hematology marker that shows this that's why I am asking the question.

Tropical Girl--What is your MCV? Do the doctors tell you this is a form of IDA?

My MCV is 58, have had enough of feeling this way and am pushing Dr to do more investigating. Have terrible side effects from iron supplements, nausea, palpitations and feeling like I just spent 24hrs on a carnival ride. Dr advised I double iron supplement, I did and immediately threw it up and dry retched and then vomited full blood, freaked me out and I went into shock, had a gastroscopy later that day and showed a tear in the oesophagus. Will now try iron supplements starting with low dose and work up.

My goodness, how awful!! Was that a particular iron supplement that did this to you or did they all have this affect?
