I have something I've never had happen before happening now. I know a lot of you have medical knowledge or have varied problems . Maybe someone can help. I'm severely anemic according to my bloodwork today. The Dr wants to see me first thing tomorrow . I've had it before but this is different, it feels different . I have extreme migraine, a spotted rash almost like Ive been poked by needles all over they are tiny red bumps. I can't focus and shake. The nurse mentioned aplastic anemia? I think I heard that right. I don't know if that's serious or what. Anyone have experience or knowledge? I was told Id be having more tests and bring an overnight bag in case What's that about? I'm way stressed. If anyone can share it'd help.

If it's the worst headache of your life you are supposed to go to the hospital

I'm waiting on DH to get home. Called our on call dr and he said they will meet me at ER. My white count is way low and they are worried enough since my sugar is way off according to my glucose meter. I'm scared.

If they suspect aplastic anemia, you'll get bloodwork and probably a bone marrow aspiration as well. The red dots are petechiae (bleeding under the skin) and pretty common in aplastic anemia. As far as the headache, since its severe id go to the er just as a precaution. GL to you <3
