he didnt give me a diagnosis. i asked him well what could it be and he wouldnt tell me. said he would have to do more lab work

i went to the doctor with a bunch of problems irregular heartbeats. and lower back/testical pain and feeling tired

they decided to do a bunch of tests i found out that i have authoritis in my lower back thats causing pain radiating to the testicles.

but he said my blood tests were not normal

he said that my red blood cell count is just a little lower than average but my redblood cells themselves are small in size compared to a average persons.

i asked him about a type of anemia or maybe lupas and i still got no answers

  • Hi, Judarian, sometimes no one replies becuase no one sees your message, or doesn't figure out what to tell you. No, you don't have to have any special membership.Has the doctor done more tests? Usually small red blood cells means a lack of iron, and a lack of iron, in a man, is usually from abnormal blood loss. Did your doctor check you for blood in your stool? That is the most common place to lose blood, even if you can't see it. You do need more blood tests to determine why you have the small red blood cells.Hopefully you are continuing to meet with your doctor. Sorry he didn't give you any answers. Marionstar
