This is really weird...I'm new to this so bare with me please. My symptoms are : fatigue, pain, tingling fingers, dizziness, irritability, ice cravings, and no period. (I bled for years without a cause- then got a D & C and it took care of that) Ok, so here are my numbers:
RBC 3.40 LOW (4.20-5.50)
HGB 7.7 LOW (13-16)
HCT 24.8 LOW (37.0-47.0)
MCV 73.0 LOW (80.0-97.0)
MCH 22.7 LOW (26.0-32.0)
RDW 21.8 HIGH (11.5-14.5)
IRON LEVEL 336 HIGH (35-150) *DOUBLED
everything else is normal.

So needless to say, i'm very confused how I can have high storage of iron but low iron at the same time. And what's up with the high RDW but low RBC? I don't have my doctors appointment until the 12th and I just want to feel better but they wont let me take any iron for obvious reasons. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
