timetoreclaim--First of all, have you had testing to see why you are anemic and values declining? Are you on iron replacement therapy? Has your doctor determined what type of anemia you have? Sorry about the questions, but this is ongoing without resolution so I am concerned. Now you are moderately anemic whereas before you were mildly. I would bet that you have no iron stores either. If you do they are probably under the range at 5-9 I would guess. This is why you have symptoms. Your iron (although not a true picture of iron) is very, very low. Your MCV is also low which is probably what is causing the heart rate to go high upon exertion. I would say IMO, and from my experience that you are definitely experiencing symptoms from moderate anemia. I really don't think that your doc would tell you the same thing this time, he didn't did he? You are in the fell like crap range. That's how a few of my doctors explained it to me. I felt like crap and a lot more. I would demand a ferritin test or change doctors. You need to know (and have the right to know) what your numbers are. Cry, whatever, just get some answers!!! It worked for me a few times. Keep us posted. Good luck to you. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
