Patient :Early in the year I went to doctors with shortness of breath and fatigue and pains in my chest. Routine blood tests were done and I had enlarged blood cells and deficiency in folic acid. I was put on folic tablets for 3 months and then had another FBC. The deficiency in folic had rectified itself but my blood cells are still abnormal so I have been referred to a haematologist. I have also had a heart test which was fine. She did a spiro test which was very low also. What will the haematologist be testing me for?
