Hello everyone, long time no post for me.
Last week I had my blood tests done however, I was 2 months late in doing so. I am on Humira so it is usually every 4 months this time 6. Anyway, I received a call from my Doc the next morning telling me that my Hgb was 7.2 and I needed to go to the ER and get blood transfusion asap. This is the first time I have ever had anything like this happen.
I guess I am questioning why as this point it did. I have not noticed blood in stools or urine. The only thing I can think of is that I have not been getting my B-12 shots like I should. Could this be the reason?
There were a number of other things out of range, RBC 3.05 (low), Hct 23.7 (low), MCH 23.7 (LOW), MCHC 30.4 (low), RDW 21.0 (elevated), EOS 9.4 (elevated), Sed rate 90 (elevated).
So, I did get the two bags of blood the other night and I felt like a million bucks 2 days later... wish it had lasted but that only lasted about 3 days and I can feel the drain and complete lack of energy creeping back quickly already.
Anyone know what the numbers might suggest as far as my test results I would greatly appreciate answers.
