Hi hillery. Did your docs uncover anything with the tests they were going to run. You said that anemia could explain our symptoms?

all the best

Re: Hi hillery - how did your anemia tests go?

Hi Soodle,
My hemoglobin was a little low, but my Dr. didn't think it was low enough to be causing all of my symptoms. They ran a long list of blood tests on me again and everything was pretty much normal. It did say I had anisocytosis. My Dr. said it had something to do with my RBC's being different sizes and shapes. I'm not really sure what this means though.

This health anxiety has really become overwhelming for me. I can't stop worrying that there is something seriously wrong with me. Now, I've developed lower back pain along with my other symptoms. I also have a swollen lymph node under my chin(the size of a marble, hard, and painless) that's been there for several weeks, so now I'm scared I could have lymphoma. My family thinks I'm crazy. A good friend of mine told me last night..."Listen to yourself!...In the last year you've thought you had different types of heart disease, a brain tumor, increased intracranial pressure, nervous system disorders, other life threatening diseases and now lymphoma." I guess I do sound like a hypochondriac. I just can't stop obsessing about my symptoms and my health. I don't see how being short of breath from just standing up can be caused by anxiety. The same thing with my tachycardia.
Anyway, sorry for rambling...I'm just frusterated. I hope things are getting better for you.
Take care
