Why am I so twitchy?

A: I have a twitch. Reading your question totally prompted it, too. Went through the standard battery of tests, no epilepsy, no nothin''. But I was also dxed with severe anemia last month and since being better about taking my iron, my twitchiness has decreased. A little reading seems to implicate iron deficiency in some cases of RLS. FWIW, I also take a B complex and cal-magnesium for my nerves, because I know stress makes my twitchiness worse....



A: Hello Kita Your hemoglobin is low indicating mild anemia...most likely it can be due to iron deficiency. In addition your white blood cells are very slightly elevated.

Blood Lab results

A: Hello Mary: A number of tests have been done and I will focus on those which point towards a specific condition. Also please remember all these are screening tests and a definitive diagnosis would require further investigation. In blood counts your hemoglobin (HGB) and MCV (refers to volume of cells) is low. This is supported by hematocrit (HCT) another measure of assessing hemoglobin content of red blood cells. This points towards mild anemia most likely related to iron deficiency. Sed Rate and CRP are tests which indicate that there is an underlying pathology / disease in the body but are not diagnostic.

What should be the effects if WBC count is 13000 and hemoglobin is 13.2.I am from India house wifemy age is 36years and I want to go abroad KUWAIT is it objesctionble.Is there any chance for T.B.?

A: It is very difficult to determine any cause or effect with only these numbers. Are you having any symptoms? Why did you have the blood drawn? In some people, this WBC count can be relatively normal, or may be related to a stress response. There is no set cutoff for saying there is an infection somewhere, which is what I assume you are asking. The hemoglobin of 13.2 may also be normal, or slightly low, depending on whether you are a man or woman and your age and other medical problems. Women frequently are slighly anemic, as they have regular blood losses with their periods. They are frequently slightly iron deficient, which may result in mild anemia. Without any more information, I am afraid I cannot help you any more. J. DeLaughter, DO...

Problems with nails-is it a internal disorder?

A: Onycholysis is a nail disorder frequently encountered by dermatologists. Onycholysis is characterized by a spontaneous separation of the nail plate starting at the distal free margin and progressing proximally. The nail plate is separated from the underlying and/or lateral supporting structures. Less often, separation of the nail plate begins at the proximal nail and extends to the free edge, which is seen most often in psoriasis of the nails (termed onychomadesis). Rare cases are confined to the nail"s lateral borders. Pathophysiology: Nails with onycholysis usually are smooth, firm, and without inflammatory reaction. It is not a disease of the nail matrix, but nail discoloration may appear underneath the nail as a result of secondary infection. When onycholysis occurs, a coexistent...
