Dizziness, feeling faint. B12 shot taken. Blood test showing WBC, RBC, MCV done. Treatment?

I felt like I was going to black out today at dinner at a restaurant. I have wbc or 3.0 rbc of 3.65 and mcv of 100.4 per my physical results I got back yesterday. I was also give a B12 shot by my doctor a few days ago. Do I need to be concerned with these results from my physical and how I felt today my A1c is 4.8? What do you think?

Welcome to HCM,

Your reports show you might be having megaloblastic anemia, which occurs due to deficiency of vit B12 and folic acid deficiency.

I advise you to take food rich in vit B12 and folic acid like green leafy vegetables, meat etc.

For definite confirmation you can get serum B12 assay done.

Take B-complex+ folic acid tablets.
