My doctor told me that i am a little bit anemic. i have my blood test results here and the only thing i am slightly low on is called HCT. is that what says if i am anemic. also, how low does it have to be for symptoms to come. it is barely low, normal is 34.5-45.0 and mine is 34.3. I suffer from anxiety alos, and have quite a few symptoms such as palpitations,tiredness,headaches,dizziness,and alot of others. i was just wondering if there was more to it than anxiety. also, i was a little anemic when i was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, but never had any symptoms. is it possible that i'm just more sensitive to it now, and have symptoms? thanks, amanda
ps. i am 24 years old,fairly thin,and have pretty heavy periods lasting about 7 days. thye have been irregular my whole life.
