    Unhappy Low Blood Results

    I have had an issue with anemia in the past. My Doctor assumed my anemia was associated to fibroids so I had a hysterectomy in 2006. For over 2 yrs no one checked my iron levels was experiencing rest less leg, charlie horses and shortness of breath. Saw a pulmonologist, cardiologist, and sleep doctor everything was normal except the sleep dr ran blood tests my ferritin was 6. sent to a hemotologist received iron infusions last infusion 2010. I always have a small amount of red blood cells in my urine. No one knows why. My hemoglobin always stays normal but my iron saturation gets lower my results June 2018:
    Iron saturation-16.0
    results Mar 2019
    HGB 13.7
    MCH 26.9
    MPV 9.7
    RDW-CV 14.6
    My Dr forgot to get my iron store. As you can see my levels have slightly dropped but she doesn't seem concerned I am betting my iron stores have dropped as well. I am thinking I need to see a hematologist again. I have had a celiac test done it was normal. My vitamin D-3 and B12 have been low in the past as well but take vitamin D3 suppliments and B-12 as well my D-3 is always on low end B-12 wasn't checked either. I am experiencing shortness of breath, charlie horses and restless leg occasionally. My body usually tells me when my iron isn't right how do I get my Doctor to understand?
