Blood test results
I have over a longer period of time felt very tired and at times felt like I am having some difficulties breathing.
Recently I fainted twice in one day while being at the university. The same day I went home and ate and drank a lot of water, thinking it might have had something to do with that. However, the next day I almost fainted again and my friends told me I was completely white in my face. When these "faintings" happen I usually start sweating, feel nausea and surrounding sounds become faint, however I do not see spots or anything like that. This has happened to me so much and often that I can feel when I am about to faint and usually just sit down. But recently it has gotten so bad that I actually faint.
Today I got back my blood results and my ferretin level was 3.8 ug/L and my neutrophils were high 78.5 and my lymphocyte count was low, measuring 14.
My HGB, HTC MCV MCH MCHC were also low.
Should I take this as if I have iron deficiency anemia only or ask my school doctor to run some other tests?
This has happened before and I was given iron pills but I always get back to the state I am in now. And since it takes some time for my iron levels to build up should I ask for an intravenous transfer of iron to fill it up right away, like the one you can do at the hospital that makes you have flue like symptoms for a day or 2 ?
And most importantly, what can be the reasons for this anemia since I eat a lot of meat, fish and vegetables.
