High MCV Test and Feeling Tired
I had a CBC in March 2014 and cholesterol check July 2014. All my labs came back normal except the MCV was high. They said mine is 94.8 and range is 80.0 to 94.0. I have been tired all my life and no one seems to be able to tell me why, so I am wondering if this is the problem. I am a female, age 65 and generally in good health, but have fought this tiredness since I was about ten y/o.
I had a complete hysterectomy in 1994, been on estrogen without progestin since approximately 1987. I started with .625 Premarin and now take .5 mg divigel. I was put on simvastatin 20 mg about 3 months ago and the labs brought everything within range. I was also put on Omeprazole 40gm for GERD about 3 wks ago. Prior to the two aforementioned meds, estrogen is all I have ever taken, in addition to multi-vitamins. When I was in my 30's I used to get B-12 shots, I believe they were. I would feel good for about a week, then would be tired again.
Any help would be appreciated.
