What do you think?
Oct 21, 2008
HI! Need some help with these lab results. (I am a 38 female who has had a total colectomy over 16 years ago) I have had a sore/burning tongue for over two months, and finally went to the dr. She basically blew me off and saida maybe I should go see an ENT. A couple of weeks later, I requested a CBC and VIT b12 tests. Well these are the results. Emailed the dr and she said (via email) that I have Iron Def Anemia and to take iron supplements 3 times a day and then retest in three months. But in the mean time, I have had dizzines, lightheadedness, feels like palpitations in my chest, etc. I have started taking the iron supplements, but should I be doing more? Should my doctor be doing more? Some advice would be greatly appreciated =) Thanks so much!!
