User avatar I think your RBC's are unrelated to your symptoms. Your RBC's are only slightly elevated. Your HgB and HCT are normal making the RBC level less important. I would not be concerned about this.

I would recommend you discuss your symptoms with your doctor. You may need further testing to see why you are having these symptoms.

Best wishes.
