Low RBC & High MCV results

by Deda

I am a 33 year old female who has multiple health issues! It seems every time I get a test something comes back "abnormal" ... It has been going on 4 years with no answers. Stomach pain (spleen & liver overlap extrinsic compression), chronic IBS, G.A.D (due to being stressed out about never feeling well ... Another symptom), fatique, nausea, muscle & bone pain, ovarian cysts, dysplasia, pins & needles, cold numbness in hands and feet mostly, vertigo, suspected skin cancer (Vit. C paste reacted and it is almost healed but looks to be under skin, swollen lymph node 3 + years ( going for FNA in 2 days!), high cholesterol, cysts in breast... The list goes on! I feel horrid & no longer the same. My question is what could a low RBC count with a high MCV represent on a CBC? I also have a high LDL , high cholesterol, high tryglicerides... My ECG also came out abnormal it reads Sinus Bradycardia with sinus arrhythmia, Antreroseptal T wave changes may be due to myocardial ischemia. I went to get copies of my records after my doctor told me to eat better and exercise. I am 5'3 and 120 lbs. and I am fairly active now due to not feeling well cause I used to do a lot more sports. I miss riding bikes and playing football with my children but I just get so exhausted and winded very easily! Any inside as to what could be going on with me?

Gluten Sensitivity and Leaky Gut
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune System Queen

Hi Deda,

It sounds as though you have a classic undiagnosed case of malabsorption from Leaky Gut Syndrome caused, almost certainly, by Gluten Sensitivity.

You also have a MCV Blood Test, so please read that page too. These are all explainable and fixable. It sounds like your docs are not doing a very good job at managing your problems, and you are going to need to be doing some serious studying and become your own best doctor and advocate. Welcome to the journey of figuring out what you need to do in order to help yourself. Start by reading the links that I gave you.
