Patient :I recently had an issue where my I felt like I had a
constant lump in my throat. I went to a free clinic and
the doctor sent me to get a cbc, and two thyroid tests.
Thyroid came back normal however my blood is all over the
place. Does this look like simple anemia to you? and what type? I had
anemia as a child but haven't had many issues since. I am
a 27 yr old female.
wbc 8.1 (normal)
rbc 5.5 (high)
hemogoblin 11.5 (low)
hematocrit 38.3 (normal)
mcv 70 (low)
mch 20.9 (low)
mchc 30.0 (normal)
rdw 21.4 (high)

The clinic I went to won't return my phone calls so
unfortunately internet is the best I have at the moment. I've googled
stuff and it doesn't seem like it makes sense.
