Hello I have a questin about recent blood work I do have an apt. with a RA doctor tomorrow.
My RDW is high has been for years and I have been anemic for years also, horrible PMS and bleeding just assumed that was why but this past test show anemia levels normal. RDW 19.5
RA factors negitive.
Dr. suggested possible Lupus I am following through but I was just looking for some answers a dab sooner.
Go to www.lupus.org and read up on their list of symptoms. I've been to that site a million times and obviously didn't navigate it right cause I never read their entire list until a couple days ago. What an eye opener! I have no doubt in my mind that I have lupus. check it out and see what you think.
I don't know what the RDW is. Never heard of it, or just don't remember. Bad memory is one of the lupus issues and it's driving me batty.
Let us know what they come up with for you. That's how we learn--through sharing.
