Is this normal?

Hi everyone. I just received my blood test results & my Mean Cell Volume is above range 102.7 fL & my Red blood cell count is Below range 3.75 10*12/L. Also my B12 result is 332. I had ANA - antibody tests taken last year . They all came back negative apart from Anti - Dna antibody , result <1 iu/mL I'm not sure if thats classed as negative too.

My doctor says it's normal. I'm not convinced as I have a lot of symptoms. Feet turning purple when I sit upright & severe pain in all of my joints. I've been housebound for a year & barely able to leave my bedroom. My symptoms are getting much worse to the point of becoming unbearable. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Well I'd get on that b12 result, would be good to supplement. Are you on thyroid meds?

  • Thank you for you reply. I've just started taking B12 supplements. No, I'm not on thyroid meds. What makes you ask?

  • I think I wondered if you also had thyroid trouble that might be contributing to your problems (a lot of folk seem to have joint pain) and wondered if you were on any/enough thyroid meds.

  • I'm not sure if I've been tested for Thyroid problems. Do you know what blood tests specifically can rule out any problems for this. I have my GP coming this morning so I'll ask her then. I've developed more symptoms lately. A slight rash across my nose & pleurisy. I'm wondering I may have lupus. But, my inflammatory markers seem to be normal I think.
