MissBliss -
I'm so sorry you're going through this! I can just imagine how hard your heart must be thumping with a hemoglobin that low. And your blood cells are very small at 61.

They'll have to figure out why you are so anemic, and once that is fixed, then they'll have to fix your blood. You'll need iron, iron iron and maybe B12 as well.

If you don't like pills, you could try the Floradix. You can get it at health grocery stores and online. It is the only iron supplement that works for me. I pour 10ml in a glass of berry juice and take it through a straw. In 6 weeks, my hemoglobin level came up. With no side effects.

But you really shouldn't do anything until you see your hema. They need to see what's going on, then you can make a plan.

For now, you have to take it very easy. Rest as much as you can, which I realize isn't easy with the palpitations. How's your blood pressure? Mine went up when my heart rate climbed. So annoying.
