Can someone tell me if this blood work is indicative of internal bleeding?

I've been getting very low blood pressure since oct. it has really started to affect me mentally where I am having memory lapses and also am having hard time speaking. I know some of my blood work is low, but I'm not sure how low. This is from December.

hemoglobin 12.5
hematocrit 37.7
rdw-sd 36.3
mean corpusular hgb 26.8

these are all a bit low..anyone know what it means?

  • That is really something you should take up with your doctor. You should never be afraid to ask your doctor to clarify something or ask what your results really mean. You have to be your own advocate. Sometimes doctors forget that their patients aren't the ones that went to med school!
