I have insomnia, have had it for quite a few years. As a result a very messed up sleep schedule. Was told I had RBC (red blood cell count)deficiency as well. Past few months have been falling asleep, unable to control it. Occasionally experience severe weakness throughout body and skin is painful to touch. What might this signify?

In my opinion low RBc count and anaemia can cause the symptoms difficulty sleeping, fatigue, increased sensitivity ..Hyperthyroidism is another possibility ..
Get a thyroid profile test..
Cortisol hormone also should be tested..
Thanks

Insomnia can easly cause Hyperalgesia(painfull touch )
Also low calcium in bones can cause painfull touch
Calcium blood test won t show it you need bone mineral density scan or a simple x ray , you can suspect calcium if pain is in wrist mainly
Also painfull touch can happen in some allergies induced by platelet-activating factor

Good Luck

hi
low RBCs and anemia cause low oxygen supply to the tissues due to diminished oxygen carrying capacity.
Starting hematinic iron supplements will help you recover from these complaints.

HI
LOW RBC CONTENT OF BLOOD IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WEAKNESS AND LETHARGY.
IRON SUPPLEMENTS WITH IRON RICH FOOD LIKE DATES,GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES,FRUITS SHOULD BE TAKEN.
EARLY MORNING EXERCISES WILL HELP.

hello there

i hope u aren’t taking any tablets for insomnia.
if you aren’t on any tablets then these complaints may be due to RBC deficiency.
taking iron hematinics will help you get rid of these symptoms.
