Mycrocytosis

Anyone have mycrocytosis. I just heard from my Dr. that I did. They want to run a bunch of tests, but from what I've read they are usually inconclusive. Why bother if they can't figure out what is wrong?

Guess not, I'm really frustrated because the top cause is alcohol consumption. I don't drink. Second main cause anemia...I've been anemic before..I do not feel anemic now. Third cause has something to do with bone marrow. I've decided not to take the tests. I don't feel like being poked and proded.

Do you mean Microcytosis? If so, I'm guessing they took samples of your blood and found the red blood cells volume (MCV lab value) to be smaller than average? How were the other labs (i.e. hemoglobin, hematocrit, reticulocytes, etc)? Microcytosis usually occurs with anemia usually due to iron deficiency or menstruation; however, there are also other causes. In general, I would think it better to have an idea of what's going on...especially if the doctor recommends it.

Normally, I would take a doctor's advice. But, two years ago there was something wrong with my foot. I took many tests, wore uncomfortable cast. Nothing worked and nobody could ever tell me what wa wrong. I even flew to Houston to see a specialist..no answers. I don't want to go through that again..it is expensive and annoying.

You think it's expensive and a pain trying to diagnose something? Wait until you're trying to cure an ailment that's been allowed to go untreated for way too long and screwed up your body in other ways...

Good Point. I guess I'll take the initial tests and see what comes out of that. Thanks for all the great advice
