I recently got the results back from a CBC I had done in January. My red blood count was .2 higher than normal and my hematocrit was .7 higher than normal.

My doctor wants to send me in for more blood tests and I'm having them done this afternoon. When I picked up the order for more bloodwork yesterday I asked him what he was looking for in the new bloodwork and he said he wanted to rule out the possibility that I could be anemic.

From everything I've been reading online, you get anemia when your red blood count is too low, not when it is too high. Is it even possible to have anemia with a high red blood count?

I'd hate to have to go in to have blood drawn if the doctor ordered the wrong tests.
