Hi, I have been sick for three months now. I am suffering with fatigue,weight loss (30 pds), getting breathless if active very tired all day but not sleepy I also have back pain upper right side. They have done a EKG which was ok they have done a oxygen test which was ok and X-rays were good too. My blood work came back with high red blood count 5.66 normal in under 5 and high hemacrite 49. Which norm is under 45. And high hemoglobin 17. Which norm for female(me) is under 15. Also my c reactive is high 3.7 should be under 3 white blood count is 9.9 should be no higher than 10. First they told me I had a tummy virus then they told me I might have mono but no test done. Now they are sending me to a cancer center which scares the heck out of me. I'm a female 55 with no drinking or drugs or smoking ever. I have had chest pains but they have past they do flare up if I get upset or over tired. If I do normal things like vacuuming or gardening I am in bed for two to three days from fatigue. I get breathless if I do these things after a few minutes. I am only able to eat soft foods soup, toast, quiche and a salad every other day to keep up my strength but no real appetite. Please help me I don't go to the doctor again till July and I don't have a primary because mine retired and have not been resigned. So they have kinda of left me hanging. Thank-you very much for any input please! Alice
