Possible anemia?
Oct 30, 2013

For the last few years I have been increasing my running and exercise but over the last few months I have no energy to do anything.I am a 35 yr old male.My running has dramatically gone done. I am getting headaches fatigue seem like muscles dont recover and stay sore for awhile also getting a sore tongue.
I just had my blood tests and received a letter from dr saying possible anemia but thats it.

Ferritin(serum) 31 30-250
WBC count 8.6 4.6-10.2 10^3/uL
RBC 4.54 4.69-6.13 10^6/uL
HGB 15.0 13.7-16.5 g/dL
HCT 43.7 43.5-53.7 %
MCV 96.3 80.0-98.0 fL
MCH 33.0 27.0-34.0 pg
MCHC 34.3 31.8-35.4 g/dL
RDW 12.2 11.6-14.8 %
PLT 154 142-424 10^3/uL
MPV 9.1 7.4-10.4 fL
NE% 73.2 37.0-80.0 %
LY% 15.4 10.0-50.0 %
MO% 8.4 0.0-12.0 %
EO% 2.7 0.0-7.0 %
BA% 0.3 0.0-2.5 %
NE# 6.4 2.0-6.9 10^3/uL
LY# 1.3 0.6-3.4 10^3/uL
MO# 0.7 0.0-0.9 10^3/uL
EO# 0.2 0.0-0.7 10^3/uL
BA# 0.0 0.0-2.5 10^3/uL

also my co2 came back high 30 (22-29)

does this sound like some sort of anemia?

I can only answer with an educated guess, not from experience. It seems reasonable that low ferritin and borderline anemia would slow recovery from exercise because the hemoglobin carries oxygen to the muscle. When exercising your muscles are using extra oxygen, so if not as much O2 is getting to muscle, it makes sense it could delay the recovery as far as cellular metabolism. I'm not sure about the headaches. Maybe others who have more personal experience with low ferritin and exercise tolerance/recovery will post with more info.
