    I got a blood test back and the doc says that I have a high red blood cell count. From what I understand, that's a good thing, but I always figured that mine would be pretty low because of cardio not being good, and I'm always yawning and feel like I'm not breathing enough... It sounds weird but that's the best I can explain it. I didn't ask the doc because it wasn't really on my mind at the time. Help a brotha out?

    Thanks.

    high or low is bad for anything in medical terms usually...normal is good

    but high cell counts can usually just be the result of something natural like getting over a cold or something

    red blood cells carry oxygen. if you have lots of it, i'd think it'd be good

    yeah don't ask the doctor or anything while he's telling you this.

    Wake up when you're at the doctor's office so you can ask questions while you're there, and at worst learn how to use google instead of asking a bunch of guys who have little medical training or knowledge.

    "Well, Jeffery, it seems that your red blood cell count is high....

    ...

    Do you want to know what that means? I mean I am just throwing it out there. I am quite sure you don't know what it means but I am sitting right here for you to ask me. All you have to do is ask. Right here. I am even pausing to ask you if you want to ask me... Come on Jeff, srssly, Jeffy, just ask me. I know you don't know....

    ... ok then.

    fag"
