... I have never had the Schillings test, so all I can tell you is about how long it takes to feel better. The answer is quite awhile. Your number is very, very low. I don't know how you're making it. Mine was in the low 300's, and I was having muscle jerks so severe that I couldn't sleep.

... Wow - I think I've found my twin. My lab results are very similar to yours and I have the same symptoms as you, so I'm looking forward to seeing a reply regarding the possible causes of low RBC, low WBC, low hemoglobin, low hematacrit - yet iron, B12, ferritin, folate, transferrin levels all are normal (never heard of most of this stuff). I was also checked for Celiac and... (3 replies)
