    I was diagnosed over 6 years ago. CBC remained fairly constant. I received 2 covid vaccines, 1st in Feb and 2d in Apr 2021. In August of this year, my CBC dropped to record lows. Now I require transfusions and arenesp nearly every 21 days. Also have unbelievable blood blisters inside my cheeks and on my tongue. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience?

    I got my Pfizer booster on 8/24/2021. Regular blood draw on 9/20 showed nucleated RBC at 114. Was referred to hematologist. DX is MDS. I see doctor this Wednesday to go over gene testing, pathology report and DNA. Can’t help to wonder if there is a correlation.
