Does high MCH indicate B12 anemia or anything else ?

I ve had fibromyalgia for 15 years. My recent CBC came back normal except that my RBC was low (3.93) and my MCH was high (33.2). Is this just plain folate/B12 anemia , or could it be something else?

Thanks for the query

First of all CBC is not a good lab diagnostic option for fibromyalgia, i would prefer Total CPK instead. Are u on medications for it? COntinue the analgesics which u might be receiving.
MCH is on the higher side, u cant take vit b12 supplements for the same

Have a healthy living
