Hello, I’m a 23 y/o female and for the the past few months I’ve been overcome with extreme exhaustion, small tasks wear me out. This has been accompanied by slight dizziness and getting SOB easily on exertion. This tiredness started last year and it is also associated with my eyes feeling tired and slightly dry, along with burning sensation in my feet. I attributed this to be due to exam stress and I didn't think much of it. Since, then the burning sensation has gotten better but the exhaustion has gotten worse, small tasks get me so fatigued and my mind feels cloudy. I am having trouble in concenterating and I gotten more forgetful and extremely absent minded.
I was so concerned about the fatigue and carried out a FBC, thyroid and vitamin D level test. The tests for Vitamin D and thyroid were within the normal ranges. Something odd in my FBC was that my MCH and MCHC was low, but my hematocrit and hemoglobin was normal, albeit just meeting the cut-off for ‘normal’. What does this mean, would I be considered anemic or not?
hi thnx for the query.
I can understand ur concern. according to ur statement u have been suffering from exhaustion,fatigue,dizziness,shortness of breath,loss of concentration,forgetfulness and absent mindedness. I have gone through ur investigation result and found that ur MCH and MCHC r slightly low than normal.
I think,u r suffering from the clinical features that may not result from slightly low MCH and MCHC. I think ur such type clinical symptoms may result from Anxiety disorders. u can get good result by taking anxiolytic medications like SSRI,Alprazolam or Clonazepam. u can also get benefits by doing aerobic exercises like biking,jogging etc,Psychotherapy or Relaxation techniques. in case of any other query ask me.
