I have struggled to get my iron/ferritin up over the past year and latest bloods showed iron 9 (6 - 26) which no one seems worried about as it's in range, Ferritin is 45 ( 39 - 150) . However, the trend since last March when I first got bloods was for my Mean Cell Volume and MCH to keep falling, even though all RBC and heamoglobin/HCT are in range. MCV is now almost very bottom of range but MCHC is over range. I have no clue what this all means but feel anemic. Just ten minutes ago I got off chair and felt like my legs were going to give way. Shakey, weak and I had to sit with head between my knees. I feel kitten weak. Thyroid seems fine.
Wanted to ask if anyone knew what iron deficiency anemia felt like, if it's what I think it is.
