hi, I have been getting phlebotomy for two years on an average of every 6 weeks.(600ml).  My wbc has always been right in the middle with everything else high.  Today my blood has plummeted at every level and with 45% iron and very low ferritin (can't remember exact number)  My Hematologist is perplexed. the drop over a month is dramatic to me seeing my wbc at 4.5 (4.1 bottom) hgb 13(12 bottom) hct 38(36 bottom) and plt not as drastic a drop at 341.    anyone here experienced this ? also my blood pressure was best in some years without taking my cozaar this morning.    any advice or direction would be appreciated   

p.s.   i know these numbers are still in normal range..but a big drop for me in three weeks time
